Heddle Park

Heddle Park 4

Heddle Park is a narrow park with Douglas fir and Garry oak trees in View Royal, B.C.  A chainlink fence lies along the ridge that overlooks the fire station. This station house is along the Island Highway. The foot path through the fifteen hundred square meter park is partially paved and connects Heddle Road to the Island Highway. This park may have been named for Edwin Heddle, a banker who arrived in Victoria in the early nine hundreds. The park is close to Newstead Park, Tovey Cove Green Space, Lilmkiln Cove Green Space, View Royal Park, Fort Victoria Green Space, Via Rail Trail and Helmcken Corner Park.
