Harrow Gate Park

The view from the ridge in Harrow Gate Park is worth the steep climb. Located in the Bear Mountain neighborhood of Langford, B.C., Harrow Gate Park is partway up the mountain. It has a ridge at about one hundred and fifty meters from which there is good view of the communities to the east. Arbutus trees are abundant in the nature area of the park. Its lower section, along Harrow Gate, has landscaping with grass and trees. Douglas fir and cedar trees with small shrubs like Oregon grape, salal and ocean spray are seen along the slopes of the hill that makes up this park. Stone Gate Park is on the lower side of Harrow Gate. Alton Lane Park, Setchfield Park, Arngask Park, Bishops Gate Park and Bear Mountain Parkway Green Space are nearby.
