Terrace Park

Terrace Park

This small natural Garry oak tree meadow is a peace park along the narrow Terrace Avenue in Victoria, BC. The parkland has a large rocky outcrop in its one tenth of a hectare area. The pathways to the benches are discrete and rough although one is made of square concrete stepping stones. The large Garry oak trees provide a feeling of solitude. As the park is slightly up the hill from the busy streets of Victoria it is reasonably quiet for an urban parkland. The wooden fences of the residential homes and an apartment building border three quarters of the parkland. Verrinder Park, Pandora Street Green Space and Stadacona Park are two blocks west along Oak Bay and Pandora Avenue. Leighton Avenue Green Space is east along Oak Bay Avenue.
