Since 1965 homes have been built into this beautiful natural setting of Broadmead. The design principles of the homes and area respect the area's natural topography, mature trees and rock outcrops, with more than 20% of the community being public green space. This area is unique and desirable, with an elementary school, a church, office park, a 225-bed care facility for veterans and seniors and a 47-store shopping centre.
The area was originally developed by the famous Guinness family, who also developed the British Properties in West Vancouver. Take a look at the Rithet's Bog Virtual Tour. The Bog is the home to a wide variety of birds and butterflies and has a delightful walking trail of 2.8 km. Rithet's Bog, of 42 hectares is the last remaining peat bog on the Saanich Peninsula and is a seasonal and permanent home for many species of birds.
Broadmead Village Centre is the commercial shopping core for residents of Cordova Bay, Royal Oak and Broadmead.

The oceanside road from Mt. Douglas meanders north into the village of Cordova Bay, with beautiful views over the water to the volcanic peak of Mount Baker in Washington State. Cordova Bay is a family area, with a mixture of newer and older homes, and a small village-type strip along scenic Cordova Bay. With its long sandy beach, and located east of Elk & Beaver Lakes and north of Broadmead, this quaint community is on the northern edge of the City of Victoria.
