  • Great place to stop and see nature you have the Pacific ocean on one side then the lagoon on the other. Wife and I took our dog for a walk there the other day and all three of us enjoyed the small adventure.
  • From Eagles to Seagulls you can see it all here..... It's like a mini reenactment of Alfred Hitchcock's movie The Birds.... Please keep the dogs on a leash. So they don't chase the Birds away
  • Great place to relax and clean your mind of all the week's garbage basically it's a factory reset great place to be.
  • Great place to view herons, ducks ,geese and a multitude of birds. Lots of parking and a spectacular setting with gorgeous views of the mountains and Esquimalt.
  • The lagoon is a beautiful place to see many birds. especially Herons, Ducks and Geese. There is also a huge selection of small migratory birds. The good part is one side of the road facing the ocean where you have the tide coming in and a fairly nice beach. Quite busy in the summer time. And on the other side is the lagoon mostly calm and visited by the birds. You can have a nice far view from Victoria or from Royal Roads college.
