Rutledge Park receives over $250,000 toward park upgrades


Rutledge Park is about to see some exciting new changes!

For twenty years, the Quadra Cedar Hill Community Association has been advocating for upgrades for Rutledge Park, bordered by Cloverdale Avenue, Inverness Road and Rutledge Street. 

Now, Victoria-based real estate company Abstract Developments is providing $352,000 toward upgrades for the park and the District of Saanich’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund. 

$250,000 of the funding will go toward splash pad and washroom upgrades in the park. 

“In addition to the proposed CAC, Abstract is providing a substantial land dedication and

significant off-site frontage improvements, which include new sidewalks, separated bike paths, landscaped boulevards and an on-site electric Modo vehicle to advance Saanich’s electric vehicle goals,” said Mike Miller, President and CEO of Abstract Developments, 

“We are excited to start our pre-sales marketing campaign given the current shortage of housing supply across Greater Victoria”.

The announcement comes after Saanich council approved a new condo development project by the company dubbed Cadence that will be located in the upper Quadra neighbourhood.

Over the past twenty years, Abstract Developments has built over five hundred homes across Greater Victoria. 

No timeline was provided on when the park enhancements would be completed.
