Glentana Road Green Space

There is a concrete tunnel under, as well as pathway over, the railway. The park area is about a hectare of Garry oak, big leaf maple and Douglas fir forest. It is a wonderful place to stroll and place to explore in your backyard. There are several desire trails throughout the forest and a ten step wooded staircase about sixty meters from Glentana Road. The pathway connects to Demos Place and Aldersmith Place Green Spaces. This section of the park is locally known as Glentana Park and is surrounded by residential homes both private and townhomes.
