Fred Milne Sports Park

Fred Milne Sports Park is in the seaside community of Sooke, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. The three and half hectare park has several sports fields including a turf sports field. The park perimeter is a chain link fence. A couple of Douglas fir trees provide shade over the area. There are two Sooke Historical Society signs along the south side of the park near the convenience store. One sign is about this site as a link for the switchboard and telegraph communications and the other describes Milne Landing as a place of commerce for transportation of good and materials by boat and carriage. Fred Milne is the grandson of Edward Milne, of high school namesake, and has both a grandfather and brother with the name Edward. This is great place to walk in your back yard. The high school green space is down Edward Milne Road while the Sooke Horseshoe Pitch Park is across the road.
