Your Community Association is busy planning with the Friends of Uplands Park for our Oak Bay Earth Day Celebration on Friday, April 22nd! [Download not found]

For our part, the CAOB is leading a bike ride from UVic to Cattle Point via a route we like to call The Educational Corridor. The route starts from our University, passes Camosun College, Carnarvon Park (Preschool/Daycare), Oak Bay High School, SMU Jr. School, and Glenlyon Norfolk School, and lands us at Cattle Point where we’ll finish up with a picnic with the Friends of Uplands Park.
