Sunny Green Space

 

Sunny Green Space is a strip of green space in the community of Oak Bay, one of thirteen communities that compose the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This green space provides access up a steep slope and is about two meters wide. It is about one hundred and fifty meters up the steep slope using one hundred and sixteen steps up from King George Terrance to Denison Road. The concrete staircase permits a climb up about forty meters and  is uneven in sections. Garry oak trees and small shrubs line the pathway. The Sunny Green Space provides a wonderful workout with a vista reward at the end as Walbran Park is just across the Denison Road and Gonzales Hill Regional Park is further west along Denison Road.
