Sunriver Stormwater Pond and Trail Park

 

Sunriver Stormwater Pond and Trail Park is in the seaside community of Sooke, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This is a linear park with a small manmade rock lined pond for water draining. During the rainy periods in this west coast  parkland the pond collects the way from the surrounding subdivision as a method to slow water drainage along the roadways and other impervious surfaces. The walking trail is gravel and parallels the stormwater drainage from Sunriver Park to Phillips Road. The parkland has many tall Douglas fir, cedar and hemlock trees as well as several deciduous trees along the landscaped pathways. The trails connect to several other walkways and parkland including the Sunriver Nature Trail Park. There are split cedar fences near the playground area and at the corner of Sunriver Way with Phillip Road.  Sunriver Trails are a good place to walk in your back yard.
