This is one of those amazing places. Limekiln Cove Green Space is natural area with a wooden staircase to a viewpoint of Limekiln Cove. Located a ridge over the shoreline, the terraced viewing area has an inset compass rose that is a beautiful work of art and enhances the natural nautical feeling of the area. There is no water access from this site. This site has a Thermopylae Club inscription on a rock base.    This is a wonderful place to explore in your backyard and is part of the Harbour Loop walking route in View Royal.
