About Queenswood

Queenswood is a neighbourhood located in Saanich East, British Columbia.

It is a suburb of the city of Victoria, which lies to the southwest. Downtown Victoria is located about 9.5 road kilometres away, around a 19 minute drive.

Queenswood is a seaside neighbourhood that is nestled against the Haro Strait beside the Arbutus, Cadboro Bay and Ten Mile Point neighbourhoods. Queenswood is a wooded area that is characterized by its homes on large estates. Arterials are generally quite windy and thin offering a very rural feel. Queenswood Drive is an example of this, traversing between secluded single-family residential properties in an indirect fashion east west. Queenswood Drive also provides access to beach front parks which feature small beaches along the Haro Strait.

There are several good schools in the area including the University of Victoria which is a renowned post-secondary institution located just up the street.

Nearby, the University of Victoria’s main campus is located in the Arbutus neighbourhood. In 2010, to expand, the University purchased the six-hectare Queenswood campus on the edge of the neighbourhood on Arbutus Road to accommodate for future growth.
