Wardle Road Green Space

Wardle Road Green Space, North SaanichAn inviting grassy area protected by two small concrete barriers encourages beach lovers to wander down to Bazan Bay shoreline. Wardle Road beach is rock and cobble at high tides and is only slightly sandier when at low tides. It is frequented by hikers and dog walkers who stroll along the shoreline to the north toward accesses at both Amity Drive and Cy Hampson Park. Wardle Road beach access is also a good spot to launch a kayak or paddle board as it is about thirty meters distance. There is a concrete and rock staircase to the rough rock and cobble shoreline. There are excellent views of James and Sidney islands in the Salish Sea from this green space.
