Helmcken Corner Park

Located near the junction of Helmcken Road with the Island Highway, Helmcken Corner Park is a small landscaped park in View Royal, B.C. This is a good place to find a bench to rest upon and to watch the traffic. A steep granite rock forms a natural wall along the flower and shrubs on western side of the park. A cedar hedge provides a lush green barrier around an electrical box and the park lies over a pumping station. A seasonal flower bed faces the intersection where the trumpet flower plant has been seen. This is an excellent park to include in a walk in your backyard. Lilmkiln Cove Green Space, Stewart Beach, Heddle Park and View Royal Park are nearby.
