The park seems to be fairly small but we only had about half an hour to spare so it was perfect. Walked the 5 minutes to the lookout point and sat on the rocks. We saw a group of sea otters and a group of sea lions! Such a beautiful view too. Worth a visit if you’re not too far!

Well marked paths around the park and down to the bays. Picnic tables. Big trees and big views. So close to the city, yet so far. Nice and peaceful so we will come back to spend more time here again!

This little park is a little hidden in the Nanoose area. The is an easy trail around the whole park. The highlight is a stunning little rocky bay with spectacular ocean views. Great place for a picnic.

This is a beautiful natural park with trails and waterfront around a secluded inlet fronting the southwest shoreline of the Strait of Georgia. Trail options include a waterfront stroll around the inlet or forest trails through natural woodlands with a beaver pond and untouched coniferous and deciduous trees. Look for seals and sealions from the headland at the end of the waterfront trail. And be aware that bear and cougar inhabit the forestland in and around the park but human interaction is rare if at all.

This park is a hidden gem. Short walks to a tranquil beach. There are lots of trails outside the park to walk dogs also. Highly recommend if in area

This hidden gem is a great place to go for an easy walk around the Nanoose waterfront and see spectacular West Coast beauty. The trails are very well groomed and easy to walk on, making this a great spot for explorers of all ages and abilities. You can easily circumnavigate the entire park in less than an hour, but could easily spend the day taking in all the beauty.

Beautiful location by the ocean.
A wonderful walking trail for everyone. Interesting terrain with beautiful ocean views.
Worth a stop to stretch one's legs before continuing on.

Have been to this park 3-4 times a year including fall and spring. If you are looking for a park that is peaceful and not crowded, this is a hidden gem. Very manageable walk from he parking lot--portapotties and 2 picnic tables on the grass at the entrance.

Nice place to sit on the beach or rocks w/o large crowds.

The park used to be owned by a Church and I recall going to scout camps there as a child.

don't ask me why It's taken us so many years to get around to exploring our own area. i had bought 2 local books over the years, both by theo dombrowski, dusted them off the other day and off we went! our first stop was here. easy to find off highway #19 onto northwest bay road. this was a former church summer camp that became a regional park in 2011. a lot of work has gone into making the trails navigational in all weather. little elevation on the 2.4 km loop, an easy walk. good sized parking lot. one arrives at a small breakwater promontory named cooks point, then around arab cove to vesper point. picnic tables along the way. good views of the islands in the strait. retraced our steps until we came to the sign "meadow" and walked through a forest of maples, firs and cedars, with ferns underneath. if you wander off the trail there are signs stating you are on private property. the lovely meadow was used once as a playing field. we had our picnic lunch here at one of the picnic tables. continued on and ended up on the road we came on, stewart road, which took us back to our car. there are numerous trails through the middle of the park besides the main one that we used. the park is around 32 hectares, 93% of which is managed under the conservation covenant for the purpose of ecological protection. we only saw 3 others while we were there. peaceful, quiet and delightful. from there we found and explored a few secret beaches at the jib, the seadog and then explored the beachcomber regional park, all within minutes of moorecroft. a very satisfying afternoon!
