  • Always love it here The park is great there's a field to play in There's a beautiful walk around the ocean, Great little shops , Best I've cream in town down there. There's the boat ramps also. Great spot for seizing if u like salt water. Aldo crabbing on the crab dock There is even a seal that comes up to say hello
  • Very scenic place for a walk. Views across the water are stunning. Sculptures and points of interest dotted around the park. Some of the paths could use better salting or snow clearance as there were lots of treacherous black ice spots. Well worth a visit
  • This park is the chosen place for nanaimoites to meet up, walk dogs, picnic and such. It is the central point of the waterfront where people mingle and meet, spend leisure time as well as being entire family to enjoy the scenery. It has artwork from local artists, a pavilion for live performance and lots of open space to play for children..as well as a playground for the little ones.
  • They've removed the iconic "picture frame" in the park! This is very sad as it was a local attraction and everyone loved it.
  • Popular park and walking area on the waterfront of downtown Nanaimo. Often referred to as the seawall. Tjere is a playground park for kids, a gazebo where events are often held, areas for picnics, ice cream shops and souvenir shops a short walk away. Public washrooms are available but avoid unless you really need them as they aren't that clean and have often been the sites for overdoses and other unpleasant occurrences.
