Blackwood Green, Victoria, BC

This is a lovely two part green space with a rose garden and a playlot. Blackwood Green is a good place for an outing and include in a longer stroll in this Victoria neighborhood. An excellent place to stop and smell the roses. If you have children the playlot is a partial fenced grassy area of about two and a half hectares. There are swings, slides and a small sandpit. Come on out and enjoy the outdoors and see some Garry oak trees up close. Wesley Park is a couple of blocks way across Cook Street down Wesley Place. Mt Stephen Ryan Park is up Mt Stephen Road toward Hillside Avenue.
