Ironwood Park

Ironwood Park is in the Florence Lake neighborhood of Langford, B.C. This nature park is along the steep eastern slopes of the lower ridge that forms Skirt Mountain. Its eastern side borders along Shaw Park. The rest of the park is surrounded by residential homes which limits access to this nature area. There are a few Douglas fir and cedar trees that provide shade for the grasses and shrubs.
