Mt Stephen Ryan Park is in Victoria, B.C., one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. When you are looking for a tranquil urban park to escape to, Mt Stephen Ryan Park is the place. This neighborhood park is 0.22 hectares with a Garry Oak tree meadow. Located on a rocky outcrop and surrounded by townhomes, there are picnic tables and benches to lounge upon among the grass-covered meadow. The playground includes swings, slides and teeter totters. The park can be accessed on the paved pathway between Ryan Place and Ryan Street/ Mt Stephen Road. It is a short walk along Ryan Street to reach Cedar Hill Road’s Jewish Cemetery, another peaceful place, and there is a pathway that leads down to Cook Street from Mt Stephen Road/Kings Street. This property is part of the Oaklands Greenway Loop. The loop includes Ivy Place Knoll, the Jewish Cemetery, Ryan Ivy Green, Oaklands Green, Oaklands Elementary School Green Space and Ryan Hill Park.
