Gosper Green Space is in the seaside community of Esquimalt, one of thirteen communities in the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This green space has a ten plum trees that surround a sloping grass covered area. The green space is in a quiet neighborhood near Kinsmen Gorge Park. The neighborhood was developed from the Gorge Park in nineteen fifty-six. Speculation on the history of this name leads to the mathematician, Bill, who deduced the gosper curve and is acknowledged as the original hacker and computer programmer (yet this did not occur until nineteen seventy-seven). Kinsmen Gorge Park is nearby.
