Robin Hill Park is a rocky Garry oak area in View Royal, B.C. At one and a half hectares this park is mostly steep rocky outcrops of granite covered with thick beds of mosses, lichen and ferns. There are some large Garry oak and Douglas fir trees and several moss cover stumps in this park. It was selectively logged in the early twentieth century. Robin Hill Park borders along the paved walkway on Chilco Road, along the turn-a-bout of Kaleigh Avenue and between homes 42 and 27 Carly Lane. Robin Hill Park is immediately east of Edward Park. Tread with care along the trail, that includes several staircases and steps, in this parkland as there is much to be enjoyed. Mill Hill Regional Park, Edwards Park, Chilco Park, the Galloping Goose Trail, Thetis Lake Park, Nursery Hill Park, Garry Oak Meadows Park and Kelvin Grove Park are nearby.
