Raynor Park

Raynor Park is an eighth of a hectare playground in the Vic West neighborhood of Victoria, BC. This is a wonderful place to explore nature and get outdoors. There are swings, slides and climbing apparatus on a sand fill area surrounded by grass and trees. Big leaf maple, lodgepole pine and Lombardy poplar trees are just a few that you can find providing shade and comfort in this park. A paved foot path connect through the park from Raynor Street to Hudson Street. Banfield Park is nearby as is Victoria West Park.

Raynor Park can be reached from Blanchard Street. Turn west onto Bay Street and continue across the Ellice Point Bridge. At the first lights turn right onto Skinner Street (a sharp right puts you onto Tyee Road). Skinner Street turns to become Craigflower Road a couple of blocks along. Turn left onto Raynor Street and look for the park on the left side. There is limited roadside parking. A city bus travels along Craigflower Road from downtown.
