Beautiful Way to Spend The Day
Mar 2021
A beautiful park with gentle roaming hills by the ocean. There are look out points along the paths to rest and enjoy the views.

terrific park!
Feb 2021
unbelievable that i did not know about this spot after living in the area for over 30 years. I've been to pipers lagoon and enjoyed my walk there.
this waterfront and environmentally sensitive park is accessed off hammond bay road just north of pipers lagoon.
as we arrived a class from the nearby school arrived, loved the sound of their excited voices. don't hear that often during covid times. wonderful they can do field trips here.
from the good sized parking lot one arrives at picturesque finn beach.
walking to the left one comes to a viewing platform where the park stores equipment.
this area was privately owned until 2009. the acquisition now provides 36 acres of parkland.
the view from here is towards pipers lagoon and shack island and the stait of georgia. the shacks are privately owned, built in 1930.
beautiful sunny day to see the islands of texada and leasqueti from the large wooden viewing area along the way.
the groves of garry oak and well maintained tralls make for a pleasant walk.
the eagle in one of the trees was a bonus as were the sea lions swimming by.
there are a number of pebbled beaches waiting to be explored.
we walked past last beach which is known for its scuba diving.
sunset beach obviously would be popular.
walked back through the forest to the parking lot.
a 1.8 km loop trail. next time we'll walk it twice.
better late at discovering this wonderful park than never!

Beautiful little park
Sep 2020
Another great visit to a beautiful park, lots of places to walk and sit and enjoy the scenery. Parking is a little tight but oh well. Great place to spend a few hours or a quick stroll.

Relaxing holiday!
Sep 2020
We really love the different beaches and the diverse scenarios we get here. This summer we visited many beaches and after a while they tend to look the same. But the beaches at Neck Point Park really got us excited! There were some rabbits and deers here too! Perfect place to relax!

Sunset
Aug 2020 • Friends
We arrived later than planned and noted the gate closes at 10pm. We hurried to Neck Point beach for a stunning sunset. We could see that at low tide, there would be interesting things to see in the water.

Wow! So great to experience this magical place once again.
Jul 2020
Such ruggedness.....and it's right in Nanaimo, not that far from downtown. There are so many paths....each one different. And the huge rocks in the ocean.....this time we didn't see any Sea LIons on them, but we did before. Most of it is still very accessible.

One of my favourite place on the Island

A great spot to enjoy the beach. Some steep areas, but overall very accessible. Lovely place to go for a walk.

Seal and Lots of Birds
Mar 2020
Great short walk in March between the out-bursts of liquid sunshine. Paths are good even when wet but of course use the handrails for going up the stairs to the lookout. There was a seal having a good fishing day in the bay and lots of birds are moving back into the area. Lots of interpretive signage also.

Soooo good
Feb 2020
While in Naniamo went to several parks and beaches. I found this one to be great. The terrain, the vegetation the variation from one curve to another was always of interest. Then being able to go so close to the water was really special when we got to see some sea lions about 20 feet from us. There are a lot of places to choose to hike on the island and area around Nanaimo and this should be high on any list.
