  • Pipers Lagoon is a magical spot right on the ocean nestled amongst forest trees, you will hear birds chirping and see beautiful flowers in bloom, their smell is refreshing! The view out into the Georgia Straight is breathtaking, you can climb the easy hills to the top and watch sailboats drift by on a gentle wind. A few great spots for picnics here!
  • Great place to hike the shoreline rocks and trails. Lots of parking including public washrooms. Pack your lunch and drinks. Sit and observe the boats fishing plus the ferries and Comercial vessels. See seals even Orca whales. Plus get the value of exercise climbing the rocks and cliffs of Pipers Lagoon Park. Large open grass field to fly your kite or drone.
  • Not too crowded. A short path with great views. Lots of different nooks and crannies for people to hang out in.
  • Gorgeous views, easy access to ocean. Beautiful little hike. Kids love it.
  • Good mix of sea side and wooded areas. Very easy walk for the most part except for an area of jagged rocks to get past half way. A little chilly in the winter though. Wear a hat and scarf! Great place for dogs.
