Repulse Green Space

20180604_141611

Repulse Green Space is in the seaside community of Oak Bay, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. Located close to the Chinese Cemetery and Trafalger Park, Repulse Green Space provides rough access to the eastern shore of Gonzales Bay. The foot path is between the thick hedges and leads to a small rocky area. This area of the shore line for Gonzales Bay is rocky and mostly covered with seaweeds. Repulse Street may refer to the Her Majesty’s Ship Repulse, a battle cruiser of the Royal Navy that warded off attackers. Quimper Park, the Abkhazi Gardens, Gonzales Hill Regional Park, Harling Point Green Space, Trafalger Park and Gonzales Beach Park, in Victoria, are near by.
