Colwood in Capital, British Columbia — Canada’s West Coast
Conçu pour James et Laura Dunsmuir au début du XXe siècle, ce superbe parc est d'esprit édouardien. Un manoir néo-Tudor, rehaussé d'ornements richement exécutés, s'y dresse au centre. Des jardins classiques, des aires récréatives, des terres agricoles et des forêts l'entourent dans une profusion de plantes indigènes et exotiques. Acquis par les forces armées canadiennes en 1940, Hatley Park s'est transformé selon les besoins du Royal Roads Military College tout en conservant son caractère d'origine.
