Glenlyon Norfolk School Green Space

Glenlyon Norfolk School GS

While Glenlyon Norfolk School Green Space has limited access it is does have some terrific outdoor spaces to enjoy. Located in the quiet residential neighborhood of Rockland in Victoria, BC, this collection of buildings for the senior students is called the Pemberton Woods Campus; there are a couple of big leaf maple and Garry oak trees. Along Richmond Road is an artificial turf marked for soccer and rugby that is frequented by sports teams from around South Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland area of Vancouver. There is a wonderful playground at the end of Bank Street that has a variety of climbing apparatus and platforms combined with slides and monkey bars. There are climbing spirals, arches and ladders set on a woodchip base. Next to the playground is a basketball court and just past that is small grass covered area. A large horse chestnut tree shades most of the grassy area which has a perimeter of cedar hedge trees. A concrete pathway connects Bank and Maddison streets. This area has limited access at all times. Wilmer Green is about a block north along Maddison Street. Pemberton Park is about the same distance south.
