Trans Canada Highway Pedestrian Green Space

Florence Lake Stachen Trail 12 Florence Lake Stachen Trail 11

The two kilometer pedestrian walkway along McCallum and Leigh roads, south of Florence Lake, connects the north and south neighborhoods of Langford, B.C. The Trans Canada Highway Pedestrian Green Space was formed with the road construction for the Bear Mountain housing projects that created a bridge for pedestrians and vehicles over the highway. The walkway is along a concrete sidewalk that parallels the roadways. A tall barrier fence thwarts humans from crossing the highway at the original intersection for Spencer Road. The green space that parallels McCallum Road to the junction with Leigh Road has several tall Douglas fir trees in the forest areas while boulevard was planted with maple and horsechestnut trees. The pathway continues over the TCH along Leigh Road, past Spencer’s Pond Park, to reach Goldstream Avenue. The route can reached from Springboard Place and the Florence Lake Strachan Trail.
