A landscaped park with a rough trail and a steep yet small ravine, Burchill Park is in View Royal, B.C. Part of the park lies parallel to the Galloping Goose Trail near the junction with Atkins Avenue and residential homes. The other part is formed by the slopes of the ravine that leads to Mill Stream. The footpath is one hundred and fifty-five meters long and is on a relatively flat grass covered area with a few arbutus and fir trees. There are plenty of blackberry bushes and other small shrubs along the slope of the ravine. This four thousand square meter park is best accessed from the junction of Parson’s Road and Atkin’s Road. Parson’s Bridge Park, Jalan Park, Parson’s Access Park, Mellor Park, Nursery Hill Park, Garry Oak Meadow Park, Atkin Road Green Space, the Galloping Goose Trail and Trans Canada Trail as well as Thetis Lake Park are nearby.
