Rom Knott Memorial Park

Love and respect make for a lasting legacy.

Rom Knott was an enthusiastic sportsman and dedicated coach who coached girls baseball for many years, including winning the 1954 Provincial Championship with his Bantam Girls. Unfortunately he died in a tragic automobile accident in 1964. His friends and family came together and bought the existing land and developed it as a playing field for baseball and a kids playground. A fitting memorial for a great guy. It was later developed and through the generosity of the Lions Club and the municipality was expanded to include beautiful green-space, a toddler playground, concession and storage building, and of course a fabulous softball diamond. There is also another play area for older children in memory of Stan Bickford.

The park is located on Wallace Drive, right beside the Central Saanich Seniors' Centre.
