Collinson Green Space is in the seaside city of Victoria, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This grass covered green space was the road right of way for Collinson Street located in Fairfield-James Bay communities of Victoria, B.C. A ten meter pathway connects the sidewalks on both sides of Collinson Street to Quadra Street. The low chain and concrete post fence protects the trees that grow along Quadra Street. This green space is a wonderful walking route to the green space on the western end of McClure Street, which is northward up the hill, and to the gardens of both Mt. St. Mary Hospital and St Ann’s Academy. Fairfield Road Quadra Street Green Space lies west across Quadra Street.

Collinson Green Space can be reached from the Trans Canada Highway. Continue along the highway as it becomes Douglas Street. Turn left onto Fairfield Road and continue to Quadra Street. The green space is directly across Quadra Street to the road right of way for Collinson Street. There is limited roadside parking along Quadra and Collinson streets, both which host single family houses, multiplexes and apartment buildings. City buses travel to the green space from downtown Victoria.
