Green Park, North Saanich

This is a beautiful park with several multi-use trails that connect to the surrounding neighborhood. Two small ponds accent the second growth forest of Douglas-fir, cedar, maple, arbutus and alder trees. Eagles, flickers and hawks may be seen in this parkland. There are small grassy areas and throughout the park are benches to enjoy the view. The natural trails circling the shallow ponds are enjoyed by people out running and walking with and without their dogs.
