Blaney Green Space

Blaney Green Space is in the District of Metchosin, a coastal community in the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This easement between the acreages in the Duke/Albert Head neighborhood leads to a glorious view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains in Washington State, USA. Fences line both sides of the rough footpath. There is no access to the water from this site as the trail ends on an igneous cliff face. Witty’s Lagoon Park is nearby.

Geographical Location N48º 23’ 17” W123º 30’ 16”
