Burnside Road Green Space

Burnside Road GS to Meadow Park Lane Meadow Park Lane Catalps tree 2

A gravel footpath along Burnside Road West from Meadow Park Lane to the school grounds provides a walkway for school children, parents and other pedestrians. This one hundred and eighty meter pathway connects along Meadow Park Lane to make a circular stroll that passes through Aldersmith Park and Eagle View Elementary School Green Space. The pathway is under the boughs of Douglas fir and Garry oak trees and is bordered by the roadway and narrow grasslands. There are also a couple of wildlife trees, perhaps used by woodpeckers and squirrels. A small grove of catalpa trees with long slender bean pods are found along Meadow Park Lane. Several parks and green spaces are nearby such as Watkiss Way Park and Stoneridge Wetland Park.
