Verdier Park

Verdier Park 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 park is near the BC Ferry Terminal in Brentwood Bay. The ferry travels across Saanich Inlet to Mill Bay. Verdier Park has a small sandy beach that overlooks the docks of the marinas in Brentwood Bay. There is a small grass covered area, with tall Douglas Fir trees, near to the road and a foot path that leads through the park. Ocean spray and snowberry shrubs line the pathway to the water. Washrooms are available here as are several benches and picnic tables.  There is a walkway along the waterfront in both directions that passes by the bistros and cafes. The park has picnic tables too. This is a good place to walk in your backyard..
