This is such a lovley tranquil place. You can sir and watch marine life, ferries and boaters go by, or hike the trails for a wonderful view. Launch your kayak, or climb the bluffs. Sunset is particularly lovely, and if you are there for a super moon, the vantage point is fantastic.

Anywhere that you can go and sit by the ocean and listen to the waves is an amazing feeling. Beach to sit at, although it is rocky, you can go for a dip in the ocean, grassy area for picnic

I've been a Nanaimo resident now for the past 25 years. My family moved here in 1990 from Edmonton, Alberta. I love photography so Piper's Lagoon is a mecca for photographers because of its natural scenic beauty! Rocky trails, magnificent ocean views, bird life and short hiking trails. It is also ideal for picnicking and social gathering site. It's on... More

Piper's Lagoon park has so much to offer - you can lie on the beach or go swimming (beach is a bit rough with the rocks) or have a picnic or indulge in some games on the large grass area. There is also a walk through the trees around the end of the park which takes you over to a... More

My husband and father-in-law came for a walk here and I have to say the view was great! I didn't want to leave. Hope to come back the next time I'm in Nanaimo.

A beautiful place to go for a hike. We enjoyed walking along the shore and watching as the tide came in and filled up the lagoon. We ventured into the woods for a nice circle route walk and saw dolphins from our perch high up on the rocks. A gem!

Tide was out , so poor timing for us, but a lovely spot for picnic and a wander. Lots of families out on the Sunday we were there.
