Community Park and Chip Trail

Open year round, the picturesque 1.1km chip trail and Seniors Community Park circles the perimeter of Henderson Park Golf Course located at 2291 Cedar Hill Cross Road, Victoria BC.

Includes: fourteen pieces of outdoor fitness equipment and six fitness stations. This equipment is designed for adults 55 years and older but can be enjoyed by users of all ages and abilities.

The Canadian Society of Exercise Physiologists recommends that we get a minimum of 150 minutes of physical activity each week to stay healthy or to improve our health. However, it is important to progressively build the amount and intensity of your activity levels over time to minimize the potential for injuries. Start slowly… and build up.
