White Birch Green Space


White Birch Green Space is in the seaside community of Sidney, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. White Birch Green Space connects the end of White Birch Road to the tennis courts of Resthaven Park. This easement contains an asphalt pathway that divides the grass covered park and is frequently by walkers of all ages. Several conifer trees provide shade along the one hundred and fifty meter long path. This is good way to extend your walk from Resthaven Park and Resthaven Linear Park. Lillian Hoffar Park and Blue Heron Park, in North Saanich, are nearby. The Lochside Trail also passes nearby.

Geographical Position N48º 39″ 59″ W123º 24′ 45″

White Birch Green Space can be reached from the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy 1). Access the Pat Bay Highway (Hwy 17) from McKenzie Avenue to head north along Saanich Peninsula.  Turn at the MacDonald Park Road exit and follow the road to the four way stop. Turn right onto Resthaven Drive. Resthaven Park is on the left as the road curves past the playground. Park your car in the public parking off Resthaven Drive, near the tennis courts. The pathway starts near here.  You can also access White Birch Green Space from the Marina Park Marina on White Birch Road from MacDonald Park Road.
