Rotary International Welcome Garden

In celebration of its centennial anniversary in Victoria, B.C., the Rotary Club developed a welcome garden near Odgen Point Park and Breakwater. There is a brick walkway and viewpoint with several benches that looks the cruise ship berths and Ogden Point Park. The garden has a couple of towering Garry Oak trees and tiered flower beds. A couple benches are found here near the commemorative plaques and flag poles. This garden is along the David Foster Walkway which is part of the Trans Canada Walkway. The garden is located near Ogden Point Park and Walkway, Holland Point Park, MacDonald Park, Earnest Todd Park, James Bay Community School Green Space, Todd Park, Fisherman’s Wharf Park and James Bay Allotment Garden.
