This is a park with a large south facing gravel beach. I like to bring my grandson here to play in the clean gravel in the sun

One of the prettiest parks in Nanaimo. Great spot to go for a walk, enjoy the views of the water or take a picnic. Also public beach access for those who want to take a dip.

This is a perfect place for Sunrise photos in late winter. Easily accessible, washroom facilities and lots of parking.

One of my favourite local parks. Its a great place summer or winter. In summer you can watch families playing in the water, people flying kites on the beach, and sailboats and fishermen on the water. Winter time you may have to dress for the rain, but you can still enjoy the rocky shoreline, and there are often sea lions... More
