Price Road Green Space

Price Bay GS 3 Price Bay GS 7

The Town of View Royal, BC, has some unique waterfront beach accesses with views of forested areas, watery reefs and the Olympic Mountains of Washington State in the distance. This is one of those amazing places although the view changes considerable depending on the tide. Price Bay is a shallow bay that forms a shallow estuary for Millstream Creek. The bay is part of Esquimalt Harbour. The pathway includes two sets of ten concrete staircases that lead from the roadside leads to the muddy beach. The route passes a pump station. It would be possible to launch a kayak, paddle board or personal water craft when the tide is high. A stroll along the beach about fifty meters to the left leads to Price Bay Park. Duckrill Road Green Space and Waters Edge Walkway are nearby.

Geographical location N48° 27’ 30” W123° 27’ 19”

Price Road Green Space can be accessed from the Trans Canada Highway, Hwy1. Exit onto the Island Highway and stay to the left to merge with traffic going under the freeway and railway overpasses. Turn to the left onto Price Road, the very first left turn. If you miss that one take the next left onto Duckrill Road and double back. The green space is at the end of the road. There is limited roadside parking. City buses travel along the Island Highway.
