This superb example of an Edwardian park was laid out for James and Laura Dunsmuir in the early 20th century. At its centre stands a Tudor Revival mansion, whose picturesque design is enhanced by a rich array of decoration and fine craftsmanship. The grounds, featuring a variety of native and exotic vegetation, unfold from formal gardens to recreational spaces, farmlands and forests. Acquired by the Canadian armed forces in 1940, Hatley Park evolved to meet the needs of Royal Roads Military College in a manner that has preserved its essential Edwardian character.

Con?u pour James et Laura Dunsmuir au d?but du XXe si?cle, ce superbe parc est d'esprit ?douardien. Un manoir n?o-Tudor, rehauss? d'ornements richement ex?cut, s'y dresse au centre. Des jardins classiques, des aires r?cr?atives, des terres agricoles et des for?ts l'entourent dans une profusion de plantes indig?nes et exotiques. Acquis par les forces arm?es canadiennes en 1940, Hatley Park s'est transform? selon les besoins du Royal Roads Military College tout en conservant son caract?re d'origine.
