Shaw Park is in the Florence Lake neighborhood of Langford, B.C. This park is along the steep eastern slopes of Skirt Mountain and borders along Ironwood Park. Douglas fir and cedar trees provide shade of the gravel footpath through the park. The trail from Shaw Avenue is bordered by a chain link fence on the right and a wood fence to the left. Ocean spray and blackberry bushes grow along the gravel pathway that leads up Whisperwind Place. The pathway also leads toward a small open area and to Ironwood Park. Setchfield Shaw Green Space is across Shaw Avenue.
