Amwell Park

Amwell Park is in the municipality of Central Sannich one of thirteen that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. Located on the Saanich Peninsula of Vancouver Island, this park is a wonderful neighbourhood park with a awesome vista of Brentwood Bay and Saanich Inlet. The rocky outcrops have springtime wild flowers. Garry oak, Douglas fir and several shrubs are seen in this parkland. There are stairs to contend with but it is worth every effort. This is a good place to walk in your backyard.
