A long narrow grass covered area between two properties forms the green space of St Giles Street in View Royal, B.C. This four hundred square meter area borders along Portage Inlet and provides access to the water. It would be a good site to launch a kayak, paddle board or canoe to explore this wide inlet. There is a bench near the shoreline which is shaded by a large arbutus tree. The east side of the park is bordered by a wooden fence along the property line while the west side has a partial cedar tree hedge and various shrubs along its property line. This is a good place to get outdoors in your backyard.
