Lansdowne Green Space

Lansdowne Green Space is in the seaside community of Oak Bay, one of the thirteen regions in the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. A unique outdoor art sculpture is featured in the waterfront green space. Created by Illarion Gallant the large artistically contradictory ‘Dream Window’ outdoor art projects into the air. There is a drinking fountain along the sidewalk that borders this green space. A pedestrian footpath leads through a thicket of blackberry and snowberry bushes to the rocky foreshore bordering on the Salish Sea. Overlooking Discovery and Chatham islands, a seven step concrete staircase leads to the large rocks that form the beach at Lansdowne Green Space. Uplands Park and Loon Bay Park are nearby.
