Nature-Inspired Parkside Living
Coming soon to Royal Oak in Saanich, Doral Forest Park is a collection of 242 condominiums by local developer, Mike Geric Construction. Homes range from studios to 3-bedrooms and include 43 below-market units. The design of the v-shaped, two-building development is customized to complement its natural environs. A significant number of new trees and plantings of native plants, forest understory species, and ornamental flowering plants, blend in with the surrounding forest of Elk/Beaver Lake Regional Park. Generous separations on all sides of the property allow for significant landscaped open space, including a south-facing courtyard.
Located at the northern gateway to Saanich, Doral Forest Park offers a more relaxed suburban way of life, yet is close enough to enjoy the cultural vibrancy of the city. Take your four-legged friend for an invigorating walk next door along the trails of Beaver and Elk lakes. All-weather recreation is a short walk away at Saanich Commonwealth Place, where there is also a branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library. Take care of all your daily shopping needs at the 31 stores, restaurants, and services of Broadmead Village Shopping Centre. With nearby cycling trails, regular transit service between Swartz Bay and downtown Victoria, and two resident electric share cars, car-free living doesn’t have to be limiting.
