Millstream Creek Park

Mill Stream Park 2

Millstream Creek Park is along the west bank of Mill Stream in the Thetis Heights neighborhood of Langford, B.C. The park hosts several tall cedar trees that border a gravel pathway. Sword ferns, snowberries, Oregon grape and other small shrubs thrive in the shady soils underneath the forest. The pathway connects Hoy Lake Avenue with Millstream Creek Trail. This trail branches north toward the wooden bridge and Goldie Park and south to the bridge over Treanor Avenue. The park is bordered by the wooden fences of the neighboring homes. Mill Stream, or Millstream Creek as it is often called, is the main waterway in a watershed that starts in the Gowlland Tod range of the Highlands and includes seven lakes and numerous ponds. The stream flows into the waters of Price Bay in Esquimalt Harbour which is part of the Salish Sea. The park is also near Ecole Millstream Elementary School Green Space, Thetis Lake Park, Peacock Place Green Space, Bellamy Park, Gourman Park and Goldie Park and Trail.
