  • We were out sightseeing and came across this lovely park. Great beach access to the lake. Would also be a great place to picnic.  more »
  • It's nice to cool off at Bloedel Donovan, but it's also super crowded and loud in the summer. If you can snag a spot early, it's a good place to hang out.  more »
  • Love that I can take our kids to the beach & swim on hot days. There's always something going on at Bloedel Donovan Park all year round!!  more »

  • Well kept park with a ton of things to do. Not only can you do water sports, there's groomed trails for walkers, joggers and bicyclists, volley ball, play ground and dog parks. Its a great park.
  • Bloedel Donovan Park is a very nice spot with a beach and picnic area, boat launch and washroom facilities. The beach area is okay, but isn't situated on the nicest part of the lake. It's right near the creek entrance and is a little silty and weedy. The lake is beautiful so I'm surprised they didn't build it somewhere nicer. The "beach" area next to the boat launch is actually much nicer for swimming. The boat launch is one of the better ones around and has 4 launch slips and has plenty of parking for trucks and trailers. For boaters be prepared for a potential delay at the AIS checkpoint, but the attendants are always very nice and quick.
  • One of my favorite parks! Perfect for little/big birthday parties or events!
  • I go there for my AIS boat inspection. Well laid out parking lot/inspection station. Nice boat launch as well.
  • Water access: boat launch, swimming area, fishing dock. Playground and indoor gym area available for toddler time in the spring. Picnic tables, restrooms and soda machines.
