Located on the Saanich Peninsula of Vancouver Island, this green space is the school yard of Saanich School District #63.  The school is named for local area which was named after a landowner in the area. It’s a place to walk during after school hours. There are several playgrounds, playing fields, outdoor structures for games and activities and an outdoor covered play area. Two gaga ball courts with padded floors are found here. A concrete staircase leads down to the afterschool care building and past some very tall trees. The pathway branches to connect to Eastgate and Moore Place. The school yard is fenced by a chain link fence along most the perimeter. The outdoor covered play area is good for ball sports when the weather is inclement. This is great place for tossing a Frisbee or baseball, doing parkour and playing games; a place to walk in your back yard.
