Harris Green neighbourhood (Source: victoria.ca)
Harris Green is the smallest neighbourhood in Victoira. Approximately 24 hectares (59 acres) and has the smallest population, located just east downtown.
To the west, Harris Green is adjacent to downtown with its shared boundary running between Blanshard and Quadra Streets. Harris Green's proximity to the city centre, access to transit and its urban streetscape make it a desirable place to live for many downtown commuters. Its central location provides an alternative to suburban living and decreases car-dependency.
The Harris Green Village serves as a commercial and social hub, stemming from a major beautification initiative that occurred in the late 1990's. The village includes a diverse array of amenities including a local grocery store, restaurants, cafes and specialty shops.
