Evelyn Heights Park 8

Evelyn Heights Park is a neighborhood playground in View Royal, B.C. Located just south of the Highland Pacific Golf Course, this small park has excellent amenities for organized outdoor play in a quiet residential area. There is a half court marked for basketball with a painted three point area. This asphalt court is separated by a lawn and landscaped shrubs from the wood chip based playground area. The playground has swings, a rocking frog and climbing apparatus to a platform with a slide. It is designed for toddler aged children. A bench and picnic table provides seats for respite. The young trees provide shade in to part of the parkland. The view from this park is to the south over View Royal toward the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains in Washington State, USA. The park is surrounded by a chain-link fence with a gravel perimeter. The northern edge which backs onto the golf course has a tall cedar hedge. Overhead are the hydroelectric lines. Francis View Park is south along Phyllis Road and Evelyn Heights Green Space is down the road. This is a great place to visit to enjoy the outdoors.
