Great park with lots to see and do. Well groomed paths that helped me connect with nature. Would be a great place to relax in the summer.

Such a beautiful area to walk. It can get a little busy at the bottom however you can hike a little away and find more breath taking views.

wonderful stretch of spit for walks and overlooking the Salish Sea and the mountains; In the summers, there is a pebble beach where people go to picnic and swim.

Just off Hammond Bay Road in north Nanaimo, a long spit curls around to make a pretty bay in the Strait of Georgia. Lovely arbutus trees. Beautiful walk. My first time here was 33 years ago for a late spring sun rise. It's still as pretty as ever even if I'm a lot older. And am happy to say IT... More

The park has a great view of the ocean and is ideally situated for family gatherings, picnics and even weddings. Our son had his wedding there and the location and ambiance was great.

Beautiful scenic walk by the water, sunny day but wasn't crowded at all. Perfect place to feel the true spirit of this island.

Great place for a picnic or a stroll. If it snows in Nanaimo this is the place to go for a walk cause the snow melts here first. Nice park perfect for family photos.

Was a beautiful view. Lots of great sea life on the shore to entertain the kids. Place to kayak and wind surf. A great place to relax. Wasn't crowded or overly busy.
