Queen Mary Bay Park, North Saanich

This one eighth of a hectare parkland is in the peaceful seaside neighborhood of North Saanich. Located on the northern tip of the Saanich Peninsula, the park has a coarse gravel pathway through a beautiful grove of Arbutus trees. There are also a few Douglas-fir, alder and cedar trees along the short trail. This is pleasant place to enjoy the quiet of neighborhood. Or take a few moments more to stroll down Shearwater Terrace to access the grass covered trail to the beach.
