Saghalie Park

Saghalie Park oak trees along Esquimalt Road Vic West

Saghalie Park is in the seaside city of Victoria, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This park is a natural gem. Located on the corner of two busy streets and hidden behind the service station, where some parking might be found, is Saghalie Park. This is a natural green space located on a rocky outcrop. It is about one third of a hectare that is border by an apartment building in this busy Victoria West neighborhood of Victoria, BC. Pine trees are along the sidewalk beside Esquimalt Road which is mostly steep rock. Garry oak trees shade the grass and wildflower meadow that can be access from the Tyee Road. Tenas Park is on the other side of the service station and is a sharp contrast to Saghalie Park.

Saghalie Park can be reached from the Trans Canada Highway. Continue along the highway as it becomes Douglas Street. Turn west onto Johnson Street and continue across the bridge toward Victoria West. Turn right onto Tyee Road where there is limited roadside parking. The natural park is behind the service station. A city bus travels along Esquimalt Road from downtown.
