  • Another amazing place to visit in Nanaimo. The lake has a great walk to leisurely walk or challenge yourself to a great trail run. Very scenic surrounded by picturesque mountains. 
  • This is the perfect island trail. It is the perfect length to walk or run as many times as you like. Not too hilly, not too flat. Beautiful trees, lake, birds, turtles, boardwalks, etc. The kids like ...  more »
  • We tamped down the turkey dinner with a brisk walk around Westwood lake. It is a good hour of walking workout.

  • Stay away and don't tell anyone. I want to keep it all for myself. You could spend a whole day here if you bring your own food. Great walking trails and beautiful water to cool off in afterwards.
  • Beautiful...wish the beach was bigger...nice hikes...watch ur children close water gets deep fast...read up on history...allegedly a farm house at the bottom of the lake..quite interesting
  • Lovely location for a 45 minute outdoor adventure hiking up and down easy trails or going for a more intense run. The trails around the lake amount to just over 6km and are accessible by mountain bikes, although street bikes could easily do it too. For those not interested in cardio there's also a swimming area, fishing dock, and children's play park.
  • Had fun even in the rain! But the bus doesn't go all the way in which could be a problem with a child and in the rain lol
  • Great location for swimming on a hot summer day. The walking trail is also great.
