Kinver Green Space is in the seaside community of Esquimalt, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. There is water access from Kinver Green Space. There are a couple of benches and small grass covered area to watch the water. The view is over the small breakwater from Macaulay Park which protects Fleming Bay. The beach is muddy at low tide but it might be suitable at higher water for launching personal water craft like kayaks or paddle boards during high tides. The Fleming Bay anglers boat launch is beside this green space and is often busy. The name Kinver, meaning hill, is derived from the Staffordshire area of Great Britian. The street was apparently named by Mr. George Mathews, an Esquimalt Councillor during the nineteen tens.  Macaulay Park, Buxton Green Park and Fleming Bay are nearby.
