Wallace Newman Green Space is 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 small green space has a good view over the springtime fields of yellow daffodil flowers and other crops to the waters of Bazan Bay and the Salish Sea. A stroll along Wallace Drive is a good place to explore in your backyard. An interesting history of the area can be found in Valerie Green’s book.
