    View Royal is a tranquil residential neighbourhood of mostly single-family homes situated between Esquimalt and Langford. The Grand and Fir is located between the historic Four Mile Brewpub and Portage Park, with its large playground and forested trails that lead to a secluded beach at Thetis Cove. For families, View Royal Preschool, Island Kids Academy, View Royal Elementary School, and Shoreline Community Middle School are within easy walking or cycling distance. Nearby View Royal Square has dentists, doctors, clinics, and a pharmacy — convenient for downsizers. Next door, runs the E&N Rail Trail. It’s a car-free, multi-use pathway that extends to Vic West with connections to downtown Victoria. A 3-minute bike ridge along the E&N takes you to Admirals Walk Shopping Centre where you’ll find a Thrifty Foods, financial services, Canada Post, veterinary, and a Bosley’s pet store. For year-round fitness, the Juan de Fuca Recreation Centre features an ice rink, indoor pool, BMX track, golf course, tennis & vollyball courts, and sports fields.
