Tacon Park

Tacon Park is a small grass covered area that is a service access area in Langford, B.C. It is found in the Thetis Heights neighborhood along a ridge above Mill Stream. 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. There is about five kilometers of Mill Stream that lie within the City of Langford. There is a chain link fence along the ridge line that allows views down to the stream through the Douglas fir and cedar trees. The grass covered area is just large enough to toss a frisbee or ball for your pet. The park is appears to be the backyard of the home on the corner of Tacon and Bellamy roadways. Bellamy Park TCH is to the south. Sunkist, Hansen, Gourman and Thetis Lake Park are nearby. Selwyn Trail lies on the opposite bank of Mill Stream.
