Jeannie Park

Jeanine Park is in the Mill Hill neighborhood of Langford, B.C. At one third of a hectare, Jeanine Park has a grass covered area with a perimeter formed by cottonwood trees. This park borders along Hwy 1 and has a gravel footpath that extends along the highway right of way. The right branch of this footpath extends about fifty meters up a slight slope and onward to a small turnabout surrounded by western red cedar trees. The trail to left leads toward Cedarvale Park and Selwyn Cedarvale Green Space. This gravel and dirt trail divides again with the left side zigzagging down the slope of Mill Stream into Cedarvale Park while the right branches passes very close to Hwy 1 and eventually reaches Selwyn Road near the Kingdom Hall.
