*Kasapi Park (proposed)

banks and leighton street 3

This small double lot is a proposed neighborhood park. It is a rocky Garry oak meadow that had been left by the land owners for several decades. Once Garry oak meadows were the landscape of Victoria, prior to colonization, The parkland might be donated by the Kasapi Family…we will see. There is a rough footpath through the parkland and a couple of rocky outcrops. With Bank Street School Green Space across the road, this proposed parkland is a lovely place to explore.
