  • Great place to play Pokémon Go. Has 2 gyms and over a dozen stops. Is an electabuzz nest!
  • Great little park loads of photo opportunities. The river rapids are great. Trails for biking and hiking.
  • Great for Disc Golf. You rent disc golf for FREE at the Aquatic Centre (741 Third St, Nanaimo, BC V9R 7B2) Perfect for inexpensive date or hanging out with your friends :)
  • This is where my husband and daughter walk in the mornings, geed the ducks, enjoy the waterfall in spring and swim in the outdoor pool in summer plus disc golf and large huts for social events right by the stream bed and tennis courts fabulous place!!
  • Great for disc golf course, challenging with all the trees but good fun. Would be 5 stars if not for the few sketchy looking folks who regularly hang around the park.
