Lands End Road Green Space

This green space contains a well used natural trail and secondary growth forest. The Douglas-fir, yew, maple, Arbutus and cottonwood trees provide a varied canopy overhead while walking, running and cycling along the trail from Lands End Road. This green space is near the Swartz Bay BC Ferry terminal. It can be located by looking for the pair of concrete barriers, on the left of the road, shortly after you pass the ferry terminal. The trail is part of the roadside trail of Lands End Road. From this green space additional areas of North Saanich can be reached. The trail connects uphill to Cardinal Close, Salal Place, Lockspur Lane. These trails continue to Green Park and Horth Hill Park. Another trail continues to Swartz Bay Road and is parallel to the Pat Bay Highway.
