Harris Green Park

Harris Green 4

 

Harris Green Park is in the city of Victoria, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This wide meridian green space between Rudlin Street and Pandora Avenue is filled with grass covered slopes and a variety of trees. London plane, lodgepole pines and Garry oak trees are a few of the species found here. There are also numerous benches to enjoy the views of the neighborhood and to rest at from walking, hiking, running or bicycling in the city. Thomas Harris, in eighteen sixty-two, became the first mayor of the City of Victoria. A small granite stone memorializes the parkland of one the city’s freemasons.
