Cadboro-Gyro Park is designated a Community Park with a unique and substantial waterfront that appeals to residents throughout the region. The park is within easy walking distance of Cadboro Bay Village and the University of Victoria and features a sandy beach which has beautiful open views of the Juan de Fuca Strait and the Olympic Peninsula. The park is located at the end of Sinclair Road and Penrhyn Street and is approximately 7.5 km northeast of downtown Victoria, BC.
The park is jointly named after the bay upon which it sits and the Gyro Club who, in 1953, purchased the original 4.37 acres of park land from the Goward estate. In 1954 the Club donated the land to Saanich and in 1961 Saanich began acquiring adjacent parcels. Today the park is 6.189 hectares (15.29 acres) in size.
