Oak Haven Municipal Park is a 10-hectare rocky outcrop of endangered Garry Oak and associated ecosystems. Unique and beautiful, Garry Oak ecosystems are considered one of the three most threatened in Canada. In one of the first conservation covenants to be registered on public land in British Columbia, the District of Central Saanich has permanently protected Oak Haven Park. Habitat Acquisition Trust (HAT) and The Land Conservancy of British Columbia (TLC) jointly hold responsibility for monitoring and enforcing this covenant. This legal agreement ensures that Oak Haven Park can never be sub-divided, nor damaged by construction of buildings, roads, or trails. It also stipulates that no chemical pesticides or fertilizers can be applied, and no native plants may be intentionally harmed or removed.
