Dickson Avenue Green Space, North Saanich

The quiet residential neighborhood of the North Saanich Bazan Bay community borders on Dickson Woods, a lovely forested area that is part of the Victoria International Airport property. Dickson Avenue forms the southern edge of the wood. Its road allowance extends along the forested area to Cresswell Road. The well trodden pathway provides a terrific three hundred meter walk toward the agricultural lands in this neighborhood. This green space is close to Balsam Park, the Flight Path and Cresswell Road Green Space.

You can get to Dickson Avenue Green Space from Pat Bay Highway. Turn at Exit 26, the McTavish Interchange, an unique and confusing series of roundabouts that make a multi-circle roadway overpass. Take the third exit onto McTavish Road then take the first exit onto Canora Road. Continue onto Willingdon Road and at the roundabout take the third exit onto East Saanich Road. Turn right onto Dickson Avenue. Once on Dickson Avenue continue to the end of the road and look for the trial. There is roadside parking.
