Inskip became a chaplain about ten years later and served aboard the H.M.S. Britannia.  This green space is a concrete pathway that connects the end of Inskip Road to Craigflower Road. There is a small woodchip pathway that leads to the grass and parking area of the Petro Canada Service Station. The twenty meter pathway is shaded by cedar trees and fences of the neighboring properties. McNaughton Green Space, Kinsmen Gorge Park and Lampson Lions Park are nearby.
