Take some time off from the usual tourist trappings with a leisurely stroll around Neck Point Park, a waterfront park of abundant natural beauty. Named after the igneous rock that is connected at lower tides to the rest of the park, the area is home to sea lions and orcas--who occasionally pass by the eponymous strip of rock. Explore beaches, rocky coves, forests, and excellent trails, and bring a camera to capture the panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and snowcapped mountain vista.

  • Went for a walk with my sister on a very blustery day and absolutely loved watching the waves and the sound of the ocean 
  • It's a nice place to take visitors to Nanaimo. It provides an opportunity for a short stroll along the rocky shoreline. 
  • This the most awesome scenic gem in Nanaimo. The views are very cool. Discovered this place on a first date, proposed to my wife here, and got married here. Enough said.

  • Always one of my favourite spots to go in Nanaimo. It's so close to everything in town, yet once you're out there, you feel free from all the noise of the city and you can truly relax and enjoy nature. Even if it's for 15 minutes in a day. Definitely worth your time to check out. #ExploreNanaimo
  • Easily my favourite park in Nanaimo. Most spots - and there are many - are accessible by persons with mobility issues. The beauty of the park is the many nooks and crannies (and beaches; 5 in total) that can be explored. A place to enjoy both cool forest trails and sunny beaches.
  • Great little park. Lots to explore. Rocky beaches, nice paths, great views.
  • This park never disapoints. Saw harbor seals and a sea otter tonight. A normal occurance here.....
  • Unbelievable views ..there are several paths, so going again and again is a great adventure. The whole place changes depending on the time of day.
