Beautiful setting, with spectacular views of the water. Nice place to bike through. Please respect pedestrians, and especially people visiting family graves or the occasional funeral party.

There is a big buck deer that can often be seen in the cemetery, as well as raccoons and otters. There are several restaurants and a pub at Fairfield Shopping Centre, across the street.

A beautiful, well maintained spot, so interesting to read the headstone and a surprise to find a few famous people too! Emily Carr, and a few important Canadian politicians, along with various founders.

Interesting to dabble around and catch up on local history. There may be tours at certain times. Ross Bay pub is nearby in the shopping centre, with excellent food. Walk around the sea-front and neighbourhood houses.
