Tanzanita Park

Tanzanita Park 3

Tanzanita Park is in the Mill Hill neighborhood of Langford, B.C. This grass covered park is on a quiet street with a good view to the east. The playground, while small, has equipment that resembles a jeep or wagon with a slide and several way ways to climb up to it. It is set a pebble base. There are no trees to provide shade over the playground. While the park borders on the railway track there is a chainlink fence that limits access down the steep slope to the track. A foopath from the turn-about leads down the slope near the railway track and continues eastward into Edwards Park to eventually connect with Chilco Road in View Royal, B.C. Nugget Park, Crystalview Elementary School Green Space, Ruby Court Park, Mill Hill Regional Park, Crystalview Park, Edwards Park, Country Terrace Park and the Galloping Goose Trail are nearby.
