Such a beautiful walk on walkways with small bridges and a large open field for letting the kiddies run around. Also has access to the harborfront. Great place for photos.

Great place to enjoy this beautiful spot. Great trails to walk. The outhouse wasn't the best so be prepared! Other than that very enjoyable

Nothing fancy. A great walking trail along the harbour and throug the woods. Ample benches and places to relax. Very few services so bring your own liquids. Easy walking and close to main road.

We could see this lovely park from our seat at Haro's restaurant and could not help but going out and taking a stroll. Large, clean and great place to watch both the ocean and the people.

This provincial park is breathtaking. It rests on the former site of the MacLennan Estate, and provides access to beautiful scenery and plant life. You can choose the trail that suits your activity level. The park also includes a water view. Amazing!

Yes, very close as the crow flies, but to drive along the river to the bridge and then back to the park is a few miles.

No it's on the opposite side of the harbour. You can hire a local car to take you.

There is also a little store just up from the park entrance.....they will call you a cab. It would take 3-5 minutes to walk to the store from the park entrance
