    Hidden jem of a city park for a quick hike. Feels like youre in middle of deep pacific northwestern forest. Ends at a nice small beach near the BC ferries terminal at Departure Bay.

    This park is hidden but easily to get to.The first part is a set of steps that Parks Nanaimo is doing a good job maintaining.A nice water falls less than two minutes from entering the park.A great place for some pics.A series of walk ways with a grated metal plates leads to the water front.
