Tumbo Place Green Space

Tumbo Place Green SpaceTumbo Place Green Space is a workout! Seventy-seven steps up the concrete staircase to a terrific view of North Saanich from Park Pacific Terrace. The views are to the north at the Victoria International Airport and Salt Spring Island. If the day is clear it is possible to see the mountains in West and North Vancouver too. Good distractions as you climb the stairs. The neighborhood is also beautiful as the pathway connects to John Dean Park, Texada Terrace and Dunsmuir Lodge green spaces. The pathway is shaded by Douglas-fir trees and bordered by a cedar hedge.

We can get to Tumbo Place Green Space from Pat Bay Highway. Leave the highway at Exit 26, the McTavish Interchange, a 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 to the East Saanich Road intersection. Turn left onto East Saanich Road then right onto Forest Park Drive. Panorama Leisure Center is on the right and the elementary school yard is the left. Continue up Forest Park Drive and turn right onto Cresswell Road. As we near the end of Cresswell Road turn left onto Tumbo Place. The steep staircase is on the right of the cul-du-sac. Alternatively, catch a city bus to this green space from along East Saanich Road and walk up the roads.
