Located on the Saanich Peninsula of Vancouver Island, this park has a small grass covered area and a playground. The two play structures are composed of climbing and balancing logs and cables. This play area is designed for young children. There are wood chips that form the base of the play area. A toilet is found here and few benches. The perimeter of the park is landscaped with small shrubs. This park is close to the Marigold Café and other outdoor places to explore: Saanichton Bay Park and Newman Park in the Turgoose Neighborhood. It is a good place to walk in your backyard.
