Blue Heron Road Green Space

Archives

This small green space provides access to the tidal flats and the channel entrance of Blue Heron Basin of Tsehum Harbour. Bordering on the property of the Capital City Yacht Club, the muddy tidal flats of the basin are home to migratory birds and marine organisms. Look over this area from the white barrier along the road. At the end of Blue Heron Road is a small grass covered easement. From here look across the channel to Nymph Point Park or watch the transiting yachts and marine life.

Geographic coordinates N48° 40′ 41″ W123° 25′ 00″

You can reach Blue Heron Road Green Space from Pat Bay Highway. Before you reach the ferry terminal turn right onto McDonald Park Road and then left at the signage for Capital City Yacht Club. This puts you on Blue Heron Road. The tidal flats are beside the white barrier along the road whereas the green space is at the end of the road. There is limited roadside parking. The city bus travels along McDonald Park Road.
