This is a beautiful walk with the Salish Sea on one side of the peninsula and Pipers Lagoon on the other. There is, however, a large rocky mound between the walkway and the point of the peninsula. When the tide is low, no problem. You...More
Nice park for a short walk. It takes a hour or so. Exactly you can walk/clim everywhere you want. The trails are not very pointed out. Nice views from the top of the rocks.

Pipers Lagoon Park is an easy 10 minute drive north of downtown Nanaimo. Spend the whole day swimming and tanning, or just go for an hours hike around the lagoon and rocks exploring. There are lots of plants and sea life to be found.
Pipers Park is an easy walk along the ocean on one side and the lagoon on the other.
The lagoon tidal basin overlooks Shack island, a storybook filled with the history of early coal mining days. and the miners accommodation. The ocean side views the...More

Yes, you can ride the in-coming tide at Piper's 's channel. It is an exhilarating experience akin to swimming down a horizontal waterfall. Be aware that you should be a strong swimmer or wear a life jacket. Be sure to go with others in case you have any problems. There are no lifeguards in attendance. To get to the channel, drive down Lagoon Drive off of Hammond Bay road until you reach the water. There are several parking spots, there. Do not go down Place Road to the park. Be sure to look at a tide chart to determine when there is a n coming tide. Have fun! But, be safe!
