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.

  • 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.
  • This is a small example of the extraordinary beauty found in the many parks along Vancouver Island. Try to plan to visit at low tide for the best views and exploring the rocks off shore.
  • 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.
  • Great space to run around with the kids and check out the tide pools. Also a great spot to watch the sun go down. If you just want to be outside and spend some time this is a great place to go, and it is free:)
