    Seal Bay park is an easy hike for families. I walk my dogs there frequently. It's shady and gorgeous and close to the beach  more »

    We took our bikes and had an adventurous ride close to the ocean. We then walked down to the water. Lots of fun!  more »

    Easy walk with no grade. Lilly pond, beach. You can do a loop around, good signage if you pay attention and follow otherwise you can end up far away from where you parked.  more »

    Awesome trails on either side of of Waveland Road. The parking lot side leads down to the ocean, fairly steep in places - but it's a short walk - maybe slightly over a half hour in total, if you are going at leisurely pace. Suggest you get a trail map. The maps are available in a wood box at/near the parking lot or just beyond the main gate entrance on the opposite side. The far side offers numerous trails (some better groomed then others), plus there is off leash area's for your dog's. A lovely little swamp is within a fifteen minute walk one way from the Waveland parking lot - it's a good place to view birds, listen to frogs, possibly catch a glimpse of a beaver & meditate. Please note; you can encounter horses, runner's & mountain bikes. Also, dog's are NOT allowed OFF LEASH ANYWHERE in park during the month's April, May & June.

    Lots of easy trails, whether you're on foot or bike. Leash optional for dogs during non fawning season. A favourite.

    One of my favorite parks in the Comox Valley. I've been coming here throughout the year to observe the changes of the seasons. The forest walk can be nice and quiet but I enjoy the beach area with wildlife such as seals, bald eagles, blue heron, ducks and cormorants. The only drawback is the area does get a lot of noisy jet traffic flying overhead because the airport is close by.

    I just love the trails that take you to the beach. They help you unwind from life's stresses as you anticipate the gorgeous beach. I recommend this park to anyone who appreciates west coast nature!

    Class A trail system through lovely natural forest and a great beach. Stroller accessible.
