Valley View Green Space

Valley View GS 1

The bright red fire hydrant along Valley View Place marks the discrete asphalt walkway into Valley View Green Space. This green space is a series of concrete staircases to a small grass cover area. There are metal handrails along the staircases. The asphalt pathway continues down with five sets of two stairs to Meadow Vale Drive. This pedestrian pathway is used by hikers and dog walkers as well as families as this is a pleasant route to take to reach the playground at Marler Park and the trail along Craigflower Creek. Meadow Vale Green Space, Chalmers Court Park, Riverside Drive Green Space, Thetis Lake Regional Park, Craigflower Creek Park, the Galloping Goose Trail-View Royal, the Trans Canada Trail-View Royal and Francis View Park are nearby.
