The green spaces are the road right-of-ways that connect Dogwood Road with Ardmore Drive and West Saanich Road. Dogwood Road is a narrow rural road. The gravel trail from Ardmore Drive is about one hundred and fifty-five meters through towering cedars and Douglas-fir trees.

You can get to Dogwood Road Green Space from Pat Bay Highway.  Leave the highway 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 second exit to stay on McTavish Road. Follow McTavish Road past the East Saanich Intersection and continue until you reach West Saanich Road (BC 17A North) turn right onto West Saanich Road. Follow along this road until you reach Dogwood Road on the left. There is limited roadside parking on either Dogwood or West Saanich roads.
