Rutland Green Space is in the seaside community of Oak Bay, one of the thirteen regions in the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. A rough 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 Rutland Green Space. Uplands Park and Loon Bay Park are nearby.
