Graceland Park

Graceland Park is in the District of Metchosin, a coastal community in the Capital Regional District of British Columbia.  At four tenths of a hectare, this nature park is nestled in between two acreages in the Albert Head/Duke Point neighborhood. There is little to indicate that this park is a community area except for a small gravel parking area on the side of the turnabout at the end Graceland Drive. Cedar and fir trees compose most of the canopy trees with a few big leaf maple trees. The undergrown includes salal, broom and ferns. This can be a peaceful place to visit.
