Hillside Quadra Neighbourhood Overview

Until the end of the 19th century, the Hillside Quadra area was largely agricultural and sparsely populated with market gardens and pastures remaining near Topaz and Quadra for some time.

Located just north of Downtown Victoria, Hillside Quadra is bordered by the three main access routes of Blanshard, Cook and Bay Street, making it easy to commute to most areas.

The neighbourhood is a mix of single family and multi-family options including condominiums, townhomes and apartments.  The area has a pleasant mature feeling complete with tree lined streets and grassy boulevards.

The neighbourhood is served by a small commercial centre known as Quadra Village. The village has been experiencing a revitalization and has an international feel with a number of international food stores including Caribbean, Dutch, Indian, Greek and Filipino.

The neighbourhood is also home to Topaz Park which is the third largest park in Victoria and a popular venue for athletes utilizing its four sports fields throughout the year.

What We Love

The Walk Street Community Gardens, shopping for international food in the unique shops in the village and the annual Quadra Village Day in May – a fun, family-friendly event with a broad range of entertainment, activities and community spirit.
