Chow-Nicoll Park forms the riparian area of a portion of Millstream Creek. At about one and half hectares, this park is a natural parkland along the ravine of Millstream Creek. The rough trail is amongst the sword and licorice ferns, Oregan grape, salal covered by the canopy of second growth trees. Some of the trees in this area include Western red cedars, big lead maple and Douglas-fir trees. Arbutus and grand fir trees are also seen along the natural trail.
You can get to Chow-Nicoll Park by taking Exit 14 northward off the TransCanada Highway. Stay on Millstream Road until you pass into the Highlands from Langford; there should be a district sign that indicates the boundary. The park is located off of the junctions of Millstream Road with both River Road and Hanington Road. There is limited parking along Hanington Road just before the bridge.
