Living in Metchosin
Geographically sprawling but thinly populated, the District of Metchosin boasts a gorgeous landscape including rocky highlands, rolling farmlands, and picturesque oceanfront.
Some neighborhoods have a community water system but many people rely on wells, and septic tanks and fields are used for waste disposal. Garbage pickup is by private contractor but the Capital Regional District does offer a blue box recycling service.
A short stretch of Metchosin Road which becomes William Head Road provides access to three parks – Albert Head Lagoon, Witty’s Lagoon and Devonian Regional Park – offering intimate glimpses of wildlife in a coastal setting. The natural ambience here is pastoral. Despite the absence of marshland, many of the migratory birds seen at Witty’s Lagoon Regional Park also use the other parks in Metchosin as a staging area, including sandpipers, turnstones and surfbirds, all of whom work the cobble beach for all it’s worth.
Despite a small population or maybe because of it, Metchosin is a supportive community and neighbours are friendly and willing to help each other out.
