Our stories are as diverse as the people who have always come to this place to live, learn, and renew.
In our ancient woods, you can still find evidence of bark being carefully stripped from cedar trees for traditional Indigenous uses, such as making ropes, nets, clothing and blankets.
Perfectly preserved beer bottles left behind by early 19th century workers evoke a period of architectural construction that created many of the formal gardens our visitors treasure today.
The “Rosa Navy Lady”, a wonderful red specimen in our rose garden, honours the Women’s Royal Canadian Naval Service (the “Wrens”) during the Second World War.
The beautiful tall white naval mast in the walled garden is a perfect example of the enduring value of legacy giving here at RRU. The Mast Site Memorial Plaza commemorates the men and women who lived and learned at Royal Roads during its 55 years as a Royal Canadian Naval College.
You can be part of the Royal Roads story through a gift that helps bring our community’s rich history alive.
