Newman Green Space lies in the municipality of Central Saanich, one of the thirteen which form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. Located on the Saanich Peninsula of Vancouver Island, this green space borders along Ferguson Cove and the ocean waters of Cordova Channel. The green space is the right of way of Newman Road. There is no water access as the bank is steep and small shrubs border the shoreline to limit erosion. Private properties lie on either side of this green space. It is an interesting place for a walk in your back yard.
