Queens Park

Queens Park is in the seaside city of Victoria, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. At first glance Queens Park appears to be part of George Jay Elementary School Green Space which is just through the chain link fence. This 0.16 hectare parkland is mostly a grassy area with footpaths so a terrific area to walk your pet or toss a ball around. There is a baseball backstop fence near the play area as well as benches for taking breaks. The playground has a roundabout, sets of swings, climbing structures with slides for toddlers and big kids. The woodchip base protects those who may tumble. The eighty meter sidewalk connect Queens Avenue along the southern side of the park. The rest of park is bordered by a chain link fence. This park is a very short walk to George Jay Elementary School Green Space. Central Park with Crystal Pool and Royal Athletic Park are both about a block away along Queens Avenue. Enjoy the double white hawthorn trees along this street that were planted in the nineteen thirties.

Queens Park can be reached from the Trans Canada Highway. Continue along the highway as it becomes Douglas Street. Turn east onto Bay Street and continue to Cook Street. Turn south on Cook Street and then right onto Queens Avenue, the second street to the right. The park is at the end of the street where there is some roadside parking. This park is next to George Jay Elementary School Green Space and along Queens Avenue from Crystal Pool and Central Park.
