Arngask Park

Arngask Park is in the Florence Lake – Bear Mountain neighborhood of Langford, B.C. This wetland park is surrounded by residential homes, many whom use it as a garden refuse site, and a buffer of trees and shrubs. Douglas fir, cedar and alder trees grow along the shores of the shallow waters. Oceanspray, snow berries and blackberry bushes fill in parts of the six thousand square meters, in an unusual polygonal shape, that form the parkland. A forty meter long gravel trail leads into the park from near the junction of Arngask Avenue and Whisperwind Place. There is a one hundred and fifty meter long concrete pathway into the park from along Echo Valley Drive which connects to Graphite Place. The pathway is fenced with a black metal fence. This park connects to Ironwood Place near the blue water reservoirs. Setchfield Park, Stonegate Park, Ironwood Park and Shaw Park are nearby. As an aside, Arngask is a parish in Scotland in the counties of Kinoss, Perth and Fife.
