Harling Point Park and The Chinese Cemetery, Oak Bay, BC.

Harling Point Park and The Chinese Cemetery, Oak Bay, BC.

Chinese Cemetery, Harling Point Oak Bay BCHarling Point Park and The Chinese Cemetery, is considered Canada's oldest Chinese Cemetery, and as such a significant National, Canadian and Chinese Historic and cultural site.

In 1903 this beautiful location was purchased by the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association and was used as a Cemetery until 1950.

Until 1930 (when Chinese government disallowed the practice) it was common for families, clans or associations to exhume remains (after 7 years) and returning the remains to the Chinese homeland.

The Site, designated as a historic site since 1995, is truly a near perfect representation of Feng Shui (meaning wind and water) in nature, its orientation to the open waters,  the protection by surrounding rock outcroppings, the lack of trees all contribute to the overwhelming sense of peace and tranquility that is very noticeable at Harling Point Park and The Chinese Cemetery.

We truly feel revitalized and re-energized when we return from a visit to Harling Point Park and The Chinese Cemetery in Oak Bay near the Victoria BC Border.
We hope you enjoy our Slide presentation for this amazing area.

Peter and Linda, These are some fantastic views you have here of the Chinese Cemetery and the Harling Point Park. I felt like I was right there on the beach and in some of those scenes. Perhaps, one day I will get a chance to come to Oak Bay and Victoria, BC to see it in person.

Hi Leesa,

Thank you for the feature in hyper local group, we appreciate it very much, the location and surroundings are very special at Harling Park and its enjoyed by locals and visitors year round, many come to pay respect, others to see the birds and the odd seal, or just to contemplate live for an hour or so.

What a ruggedly beautiful cemetary Peter and Linda. It reminds me very much of the west coast of Scotland. I suppose if you have to spend eternity somewhere, it would be nice to have great views like that to look at.

Peter and Linda, Interesting slide show. Malcolm is right it does look like a rugged area.
