Fun facts from around the Royal Bay community
The Fisgard Lighthouse, a staple of the Colwood community, cost $12,000 to build in 1860, equivalent to about $372,000 in 2019.
Painter Trail is eco-friendly! The pathway is made up of reused and recycled materials from other construction and maintenance projects, and mulched yard waste from the Colwood Branch Drop Off.
The land that Royal Bay is located on was once known as Producer’s Pit, a gravel extraction site which generated more than 20,000 tonnes of aggregate every day at the peak of its operations.
Congratulations to the Royal Bay Secondary School Ravens Senior Boys Soccer Team, who finished first in the Lower Island Soccer League this season and finished second in the Colonist Cup!
