Sun Estates Park

Sun Estates Park is in the Braemar Heights neighborhood of Langford, B.C. This park borders on southern slopes Lookout Lake Park, a swimming and fishing reservoir in Colwood, B.C.  This green space is on the western slope of Triangular Hill also called Triangle Mountain.  Rocky outcrops with cedar and Douglas fir are found in this steep area of Triangle Mountain on Southern Vancouver Island. Lookout Brook flows intermittently through this parkland supplied by overflow from Lookout Lake. The brook has a earth dam on the junction with the reservoir which was constructed in nineteen fifty eight for the forest protection services. The brook eventually connects with Pritchard Creek which flows into Bilston Creek and onward into Witty’s Lagoon and Juan de Fuca Strait. Sun Estates Park is a nature park with a rough gravel foot path that winds down though the Douglas fir forest grove. Havenwood Park, in Colwood, Sunhills Park, SunGrove Park, Desmond South Park, Desmond North Park and Ernhill Park are nearby.
