Highview Park South (Redbud)

This lovely park is a wildlife forest with cedar, Douglas-fir and cottonwood on its slopes.  It also contains the water reservoir for the neighborhood and a cellular tower. The view from this park is mostly to the west overlooking Saanich Inlet and Deep Cove. This is a quiet peaceful neighborhood park to include in your walks in your backyard. The added bonus with this parkland is that it is one of three parks near the summit of Cloake Hill. The other two are Highview Park North and Sycamore Park.
