Le Quesne Park

Le Quesne Park is in the Langford Lake area of Langford, B.C. This small waterfront park has a sign and a wooden arch that marks the gravel pathway. Strolling along the one hundred and thirty meter long pathway brings you to a twenty meter wide section of the lake shore. This area of the lake is rather muddy although the cottonwood and alder trees provide ample shade.  Seasonally the park becomes part of the wetlands of Langford Lake as the outflow for the lake was once toward Colwood Creek and Glen Lake. The berm for the railway changed the drainage of the lake in the mid nineteen thirties. At the moment, dogs are allowed in this park in the winter months. Leigh Beach Park, Flute Lane Park, Langford Lake Park with Ed Nixon Trail, Goudy Park, Belmont Secondary School Green Space, Westhills Park, Irwin Park, Centennial Park, Spencer Middle School Green Space, Shelby Park, Glen Lake Park and City Center Park are nearby.
