Walbran Park

Location: 
Denison Road
Park Category: 
Undeveloped, Natural Area
Description: 

Often referred to by locals as “Gonzales Hill”

An undeveloped natural area (1.99 hectare) in a residential neighborhood, accessible from Denison Road with limited roadside parking, with scenic views from a historical WWII lookout and from a historical marker cairn. There are unmaintained minor trails, not accessible by wheeled apparatus, and some imperiled ecosystems that are under threat from invasive species in the park.

This park provides viewpoints from which to enjoy magnificent views of ocean, mountain, and the surrounding urban and waterfront landscape, as well as opportunity to learn of the historical and conservation significance of the area via historical plaques provided by the Federal Government.

There is a short trail with steps to the marker cairn; otherwise the area is rugged and unsuitable for hiking.
