    Playfaire Park


    Springtime at Playfaire Park is crazy beautiful. There are thousands of camas blooming in among the Garry Oak trees in this micro ecosystem. I love the purple of the camas against the green of spring. The Garry Oak ecosystem is home to more plant species than any other land-based ecosystem in coastal British Columbia. This park is located in the traditional territory of the the Lekwungen (Songhees and Esquimalt) People. Camas and the many other plants found in Garry Oak meadows are important Indigenous food sources. Unfortunately, this ecosystem is endangered, with less than 5% of the original habitat remaining in near-natural conditions.
