The City of Colwood is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. There is a wide selection of houses for sale in Colwood BC, a community suitable for young families, retirees and people looking for a way of life that is close to both nature and convenient amenities. Just a short commute from BC’s capital city of Victoria, Colwood is a fast-growing, family-friendly waterfront community of just over 16,000 people that enjoys a rich heritage, a unique connection to nature and incredible potential.
Close to Beaches and Regional Parks
Colwood is just a short cycle or drive from the miles of walking trails that network Thetis Lake. Goldstream Provincial Park is also close by, while Witty’s Lagoon is a perfect place to go hiking, observe wildlife, or spend a day at the beach.
On top of that, residents of Colwood know that a trip to the west coast of the Island is at least half-hour closer than when travelling from Victoria. And that’s an added bonus when travelling by car with children.
Schools Serving Colwood
Colwood lies within Sooke School District (SD 62). There are two new high schools in the region (one in Langford, and one at the end of Veterans Memorial Parkway, in Colwood).
Colwood boasts Royal Bay Secondary, one of the newest schools in British Columbia. In 2018 it was announced a further $25 million would be invested in the school to create 21 new classrooms that will house 600 more students.
Belmont is Langford’s new high school and is located adjacent to Eagle Ridge Community Centre, Langford’s state-of-the-art (and large) sports centre. High school students enrolled in Belmont’s “hockey academy” program use nearby Eagle Ridge for practices and games.
Transportation in Colwood
Colwood is located about twenty minutes by car from downtown Victoria. The airport and BC Ferries are about a forty minute drive located to the northeast.
Some Colwood residents commute to downtown by bicycle via the Galloping Goose Regional Trail. Depending on your fitness level, travelling by bicycle into town can be just as fast as driving.
