Rotary Park – Field of Dreams

Archives

Rotary Park is a busy ball park during the spring, summer and autumn months. This well designed park hosts five groomed ball diamonds as well as a small toddler playground. The baseball and softball practices and games are organized by the Peninsula Baseball and Softball Association.  Each diamond is slightly different to accommodate the various baseball and softball divisions. Ball games can be watched from the spectator stands or from one of the many picnic tables in the park.  The concession, washrooms and facility are open during events. The park is set amongst the agricultural lands of Pendray Farms and is located next to the Victoria International Airport. The walking and cycling trail called the Flight Path passes by Rotary Park along East Saanich Road.

You can get to Rotary Park from Pat Bay Highway.  Turn left at Beacon Avenue and left again onto Stirling Way. Follow the road as it curves around the fence line of the airport to become Ocean Avenue West. At the junction with Canora Road turn left and look for the ball park, on the right, just after passing the sign for British Columbia Aviation Museum. Turn right onto Chipmunk Court and continue onto the large gravel parking area which is well away from the ball diamonds. Rotary Park can also be reached from Pat Bay Highway exiting at the McTavish Interchange, an unique and confusing multi-circle roadway overpass, which leads to the southern section of Canora Road.
