Belmont Secondary School Green Space

Belmont Secondary School Green Space is near the northwest shore of Glen Lake in Langford, B.C. It lies upslope from the Goudy Sports Field in the City Center Park and Langford Lake. This green space was once the school grounds of Glen Lake Elementary School, the Sooke School District #62, that was built in nineteen sixty one. The original Belmont High was along Jacklin Road. Its removal makes room for commercial and residential developments. Douglas fir trees and a few arbutus trees border along Glen Lake Road near this green space. A few more Douglas fir and cedar trees are found to the west of the building. Several street trees have been planted in areas in the parking lot for the school.  Irwin Park, City Center Park, Shoreview Park, Westhills Park, the Galloping Goose Trail-Langford, Langford Lake Park, Leigh Beach Park, Mount Wells Regional Park and Glen Lake Park are nearby.
