Estelline Park

Estelline Park is in the District of Saanich, one of thirteen areas that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. It lies on the southern end of Prospect Lake and is bordered by the lake and neighborhood properties. About a half of a hectare, Estelline Park provides walk in access to Prospect Lake for personal portable watercraft like kayaks, paddle boards and fisher floats. The footpath through a grass field leads to a small bay of Prospect Lake. Willow tree, black cottonwood form a riparian area along the shore. There is beach access to the lake between the bushes lining the waters edge.  This is a good place to walk in your backyard.
