Lake Ida Ann Park 5 Lake Ida Ann Park 2 Lake Ida Ann Park

Lake Ida Ann Park is in the Bear Mountain – Florence Lake neighborhood of Langford, B.C. This small manmade lake lies within the Gardner Creek drainage which is part of the Mill Stream watershed. The park is about a hectare in size with a gravel footpath along the shoreline. The four hundred meter pathway is partial forested with alder, ocean spray with small arbutus, willow, cedar and spruce trees. Along the trail, there are picturesque views of the two fountains used to aerating the shallow water. Several benches and picnic tables are found along the lake shore although this is not a lake for swimming as it rather shallow. A wooden pedestrian bridge passes over a seasonal creek near the trail to Jamie Place. The east end of the lake is dammed by concrete bags and a culvert to maintain the water level. This lake is stock annually with seventy-five trout by the government’s environment branch. The expectation is that the fish will be hooked by young novice fishers. Pathways from both Jamie Place and Ashley Place connect to the lake trail.
