Yew Street Green Space

This linear green space connects Reed Street with Villance Street near Tolmie Street with a seventy-five meter paved path. The pathway appears to be the original right of way for Yew Street when the area was initially planned back in early nineteen hundreds. The path is bordered by fences and cedar hedges of the homes along the trail. It is close to Topaz Park, Alder Street Green Space and Quadra Heights Park.
