West Shore, British Columbia
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
The Western Communities (or erroneously, and usually by outsiders 'the West Shore') is the suburban municipalities of Colwood, Langford, Metchosin and The Highlands. Greater Langford and unincorporated districts west of Esquimalt Harbour and Portage Inlet, and south of the Malahat in the Capital Regional District (CRD), Greater Victoria of British Columbia. The Town of View Royal, which straddles Esquimalt Harbour, may also be included. It is an area of growing residential subdivisions, although farmland and substantial tracts of wilderness still predominate.
Before the Western Communities moniker gained popularity, the area was referred to by locals as GLANCOLME, an acronym for Glen lake, LANgford, COLwood and MEtchosin.
West Shore Park & Recreation is governed by the West Shore Parks & Recreation Society's Board of Directors made up of representatives from the City of Colwood, the District of Langford, the District of Metchosin, the District of Highlands, the Juan de Fuca Electoral area and the Town of View Royal.
