There is very easy access to Pipers, right off of Hammond Bay Road. It's a relaxing place to stroll about; and, has an extremely magnificent view of the ocean.

Nice level 15 minute walk from parking lot to end of path. Beautiful views of Vancouver mountains. When the tide goes out, there is a nice sandy swimming beach near the end of the path and a nice tidal lagoon on the other side of the path. If you are feeling adventureous, beyond the regular path are large boulders and if you climb over them, then you will find another path with amazing views of Shack Island and you will be hiking in Garry Oak trees.

Gotta drive in unless u take the bus. Very poplar with dog walkers but not a very long walk unless you climb up some rockfaces and poke around. Benches around to take in the view- rock beaches, craggy trees, grasses and views of the water and busy seabirds. Situated in a residential neighbourhood with a great pub nearby.

Great little park with lots of waterfront. Beach is a bit rocky but certainly walkable. Nice even path for wheelchair/stroller - just not very long of a walk. When the tide is out you can bypass the climbing the rocks to get on the other trails. Lovely peaceful place.

If you want a walk with a little bit of climbing then this is perfect for you. The rocks you climb over are not too difficult and I would say most people could handle them. I took my three year old grandson and he was fine. He loved all the climbing and looking under rocks for crabs.
It really is a lovely spot for a stroll, a climb or a picnic. Climb to the top of the rocks and have your picnic there watching the ferries come and go and watch the eagles.
