Located within the Sooke School District #62, Willway Elementary School yard is in Goldstream neighborhood of Langford, B.C. The green space that forms the school grounds has two playground areas, several benches and picnic tables. The two and half hectare green space is available outside of school hours. The front of the shcool building has some picnic tables near the grove of pine trees, possibly white pines. Also near the parking area, at the front of the school, is a asphalt area for sports such as hockey, as well as a small monkey bar set and swing set. The second playground has swings and a climbing platform that has a slide. It lies near the asphalt basketball court and hopscotch grids around the back of the school building. A small fenced garden area hosts several edible plants. Most of the school ground is a large open grass field used for sports like soccer, field hockey, baseball or running events. The green space is surrounded by chain link fencing, that border along private homes, except at the trails for Lakehurst Green Space, Robalee Green Space and the two Santana Green Spaces. This is great place to visit in your backyard. Gold Stream Provincial Park, Mt Wells Regional Park, Harlequin Park, Goldstream Meadows Park, Langford Lake Park and several green spaces are nearby.
