Located on the Saanich Peninsula of Vancouver Island, this green space lies along the easement of Fentress Road beside Lochside Drive and the Pat Bay Highway. There is redwood tree with several cedar and deciduous trees in the green space.  A large grass covered area and several shrubs border the trees. This is a good place for a rest stop while cycling along the Lochside Trail. The beach access to Bazen Bay is poor. The easement and ephemeral creek between homes 8443 and 8675 leads to the ocean.
