Mowich Park

Mowich Park is in the seaside community of Sooke, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This nature park borders along Saseenos Creek and parallels Woodlands Road. It is also referred as Woodland Park and is divided by Mowich Drive. This half a hectare parkland has some tall cedar and hemlocks. As the name mowich is defined as deer in Indian language, deer might also be seen here. There are plenty of Himalayan blackberries and other small plants growing under the deciduous and conifers in this riparian area for Saseenos Creek. A rough pathway leads from Woodlands Road to the creek side in the western section of the park.
