A really special place to walk and enjoy Nanaimo's harbour. This is the place to watch the famed annual bathtub races. Bring a picnic, and come down and spend the day.

We were at the park to participate in the bathtub weekend celebrations. They have awesome bathrooms and lots of great lawn space and trees for shade. Cool space to hangout and watch the water. We will be back

This park is so beautiful, I find it very calming when I do the walk. I am always so amazed how many people are there enjoying the walks even when the weather is not behaving.
