Buckbrush Swamp Park


Buckbrush Swamp Park is in the District of Metchosin, a coastal community in the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. The rough well-trodden footpath circles around a small wetlands area and is about five hundred meters long. Sections of the pathway double as a bridle trail while no deer were spotted during my reconnaissance there is plenty of evidence that deer visit this parkland. The forest and wetlands are composed of deer fern, bracken, grasses, lichens, willows, hemlock, Douglas fir, western red cedar, alder and bigleaf maple trees. The park is across the road from Metchosin Wilderness Park and close to Bob Mountain Park.
