Desmond South Park

Desmond South Park is in the Triangle Mountain and Braemar neighborhood of Langford, B.C. This park is on the west side of Desmond Drive. It is across the road from Desmond North Park on the western slope of Triangular Hill, also called Triangle Mountain. The intermittent waters that form Lookout Brook can be seen in the ravine of this parkland. The brook flows into Pritchard Creek which joins Bilston Creek and Witty’s Lagoon. The water eventually reaches the Strait of Juan de Fuca.  There is a short gravel foot path the parallels Desmond Drive before curving eastward to connect with the trail into Desmond South Park. Havenwood Park, in Colwood, Sunhills Park, Sun Estates Park, Desmond North Park and Willing Park  are nearby.
