Goward House

Home Away From Home

Fifteen Years of Woodland Restoration

Today’s urban forest surrounding Goward House is a result of the fortunate confluence of several circumstances three decades ago: the desire of the Goward family that the property remain undivided when they sold the property to the District of Saanich; the initiative and strong support of the Cadboro Bay Residents Association, under the chair of Gerry Gabel,  in the period from 1987 to 1989; the support of residents adjacent to Goward House who were anxious that the property remain as undeveloped urban forest; and the late 1980’s support of Saanich Council and their 1989 rezoning of the property from single-family use to P-4 (Recreation and Open Space).
Let us not forget the important role played by the Cadboro Bay Residents association in Goward House and in the Goward woodland that we know today.
