photographic inspiration, even a wedding. Bring your flip flops and swim gear in the summer to saunter into the water for a swim or snorkel. Its voted one on the best areas to dive,its also a great spot to launch a kayak or paddle board.

The perfect place to enjoy the sights, sounds and fresh air along with friends and family at this ocean side park. Lots of winding trails through this 36 acres park among the trees and along the shoreline keep it new even if you come time and time again as I do.
The pebbly beach access near the parking area is the perfect place to launch a kayak or paddle board as the water is often calm there. I’ve been told this is a fantastic place for scuba diving.
Wheelchairs could find the steep slope to the water point difficult but there is an access road if you have a scooter or motorized wheelchair.
There are several coves and places to enjoy a picnic with tables provided in all the best viewing places. Or hike to the top of the bluff on the Keel Cove (west) side and enjoy the sunsets on the rocks. Spectacular!
Seals, Sea Lions, Eagles, Seagulls, Deer, many shore birds, and even Orca frequent this area. Its and artists or photographers dream spot.
Also there are a few fairy tale trees with little doors where kids can find and leave some secret treasures.
Dogs on leashes are allowed to enjoy this wonderful place too.

Pack a picnic and enjoy a beautiful walk through the forest and then along the sea. Over 40 acres of woods and oceanfront and five beach coves. This park has everything. Flat trails. Hilly trails with stairs; both steep and not so steep. And of course the choice - "advanced" or "beginner" - is yours to make. Lots to see - rugged rock cliffs, winding trails through Garry Oak groves, and wildlife. I haven’t dove here but there is a an access road for drive up diving with rave reviews from fellow divers.
