Turner’s Bog Park

Turners Bog 3

Turner’s Bog Park is in the Goldstream neighborhood of Langford, B.C. As shallow wetland area that drains toward Langford Lake to connect with Langford Creek, Turner’s Bog has several wetland shrubs, sedges and rushes along its shoreline. The wetlands were formed as a glacial depression called a kettle lake. Langford Creek is part of the Goldstream River watershed. There are few taller trees found near the wetlands too. This park borders on Amy Pond Park which lies to the north and is surrounded by a warehouse for Sysco, a food service distribution company, the West Shore Parkway and Kettle Lake Drive. Amy Pond Park, Lakehurst Park, Gold Stream Provincial Park, Mt Wells Regional Park, Harlequin Park, Goldstream Meadow West Shore Park, Goldstream Meadows Park, Langford Lake Park and several green spaces are nearby.
