highlandsThe District of Highlands recognizes that arts and culture are an important expression of the diverse values, heritage and creative interests of Highlands residents.

Where to Find Public Art

The Highlands is northwest of Victoria and View Royal. More than one-third of the Highlands is protected as municipal, regional, and provincial parkland.

The District’s public art can be found inside the ’Little Red Schoolhouse’ in the Caleb Pike Heritage Park.
