Wesley Park

Wesley Park is in the seaside community of Victoria, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. About the size of a couple of residential lots in Victoria, Wesley Park is a grass covered quarter of a hectare with a terrific playground. This is small yet wonderful area includes a picnic table and benches. The wood chip protected play area includes toddler and big kid swings, climbing platforms and bars. There is nice willow tree and a few shrubs. The park is surrounded by homes of this Oaklands/Haultain neighborhood. The park is close to Haultain Village with some terrific shops and restaurants. It is just a couple blocks downhill from Mt Stephen Ryan Park. Another playlot with a rose garden is at Blackwood Green which is across Cook Street. The eighty meter long paved footpath lies on the eastern side of the park leads from Wesley Place to Bay Street.
