Cathedral Hill is a quiet residential neighbourhood, located in proximity of downtown Victoria BC. At its heart sit Christ Church Cathedral, and one could say its heartbeat is the K-8 school, which sees almost 200 children from ages 4-13 (?).
The YMCA, which runs a daycare center is located right across the street from the cathedral, and so is the new playground on the old court lands. This new addition to the neighbourhood has proven to be very popular, and really demonstrated how family oriented this neighbourhood really is.
The proximity to downtown is easily forgotten once one crosses Quadra street into the residential area. There, the streets are quiet and passers-by usually greet each other.
