Ludlow Road Park

Ludlow Road Park is in the seaside community of Sooke, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This nine and half hectare parkland borders on the Sea to Sea Regional Park. Located in the Saseenos neighborhood, Ludlow Park is a nature park that is relatively inaccessible. It protects a small section of the Ayum Creek ravine and riparian areas. Ayum Creek hosts the commercial harvested coho and chum salmon as well as their prey organisms. The park land forest is a second growth forest of hemlock, cedar and fir trees as the land was selectively harvested in the early nineteen hundreds.
