The first part of the green space is leads to the twenty meter long Blaauw Pier which is right beside the Deep Cove Marina and facilities. Blaauw Pier is a North Saanich heritage site.

This pier is good platform for watching summertime sunsets.

This one hundred meter long trail is just a few meters east of Denham Till Park, a lovely forested parkland. The trail is bordered by Western red cedar and Douglas-fir trees with
