Midwood Green Space

Midwood Green Space 7

Midwood Green Space is clover and grass covered area with beach access onto Portage Inlet in View Royal, B.C. This is good place to watch a sunrise over the inlet. The muddy shoreline is a low bank that is landscaped from the roadway. This is also a pump station for the community. The area is decorated with spinners and a dog silhouette which would discourage water fowl from using the green space. A couple of benches at this view point make this a restful site to observe migratory birds such as gadwalls, widgeons, wood ducks, geese, loons, plovers, terns and grebes. Thomas Park, White Pine Place Green Space, Seabird Park, Polly Place Green Space, Tidewater Road Green Space, Helmcken Centennial Park, Stillwater Road Green Space and St. Giles Park are nearby.
