The nature area that divides a small section the Bear Mountain Parkway has several tall Douglas fir and cedar trees with a dense ground cover of shrubs. This one and half hectare area is near the Stone Gate subdivision and has the large sign for the area located on the lower end. Gardner Creek, a tributary for Mill Stream, flows through the forested area. There is no parking near this green space although it can be reached from the trail from Barrow Gate Road and is near the Echo Valley Drive. Setchfield Park, Gannet Court Green Space, Skyline Park, Harrow Gate Park, Bishop Gate Park and Alton Lane Park are nearby.
