Bluebell Place Park, North Saanich

Archives

This is a beautiful one hectare forest with cedar, Douglas-fir and  arbutus trees. Sword ferns, salal and English ivy speckle the area along the multi-use trails in the park. These trails connect Bluebell Place to Lands End Road and can be reached using the trail with stairs that lead to Cloake Hill Road.  A popular parkland such that the trails are worn by hikers and their dogs, bikers as well as equestrians. The glimpses of Saltspring Island and the Salish Sea from Readings Drive are lovely.
