The Legacy

For decades the Steele family operated the 88-acre Prospect Lake Golf Course. After retiring the operation, they wanted to turn it into a community legacy. The Steele family recently leased the property to Power To Be for 25 years. The Victoria-based non-profit envisions it becoming a world-class nature-based recreational facility for children, youth and adults living with physical, mental, or financial barriers.

Partnership With The Steele Family

The Steele family has owned the unique 88-acre property at the south end of Prospect Lake for more than 40 years. The family operated the former Prospect Lake Golf Course on the property until it closed permanently on November 30, 2015.  The family searched throughout 2015 to find the right steward for the land for the future, an organization that would respect the natural beauty of the land and operate programs to benefit the community-at-large. Power To Be was selected as an organization aligned with the family’s future vision and property objectives.

The Mission

HeroWork's mission with this project is to engage in the "art of modern-day barn raising," mobilizing the community of greater Victoria to build the property's infrastructure so that Power To Be can continue high-quality programs to meet a growing community need for accessible nature-based activities. Inclusive adventures activities include: kayaking, canoeing, camping, surfing, hiking, fishing, and more.

The scope of this Radical Renovation is currently in process. Details coming soon.
