This park is near Neck Point which is probably a more popular destination, but we preferred this park. It is nice and flat for walking. Open views over the water. Pets on their leashes are welcome. Some pathways may be under water during high tide....More

This park offers an easy walk by the beach as well as a slightly more rugged path through a unique garry oak ecosystem.

This is a great place to visit and walk around. The hike is easy and the views over the Georgian Straight are awesome. You can also see Shack Island - very interesting! Parking near the park, with good access.

We had a great time exploring Pipers Lagoon. It is a short walk around and the views are beautiful. Family of four - 2 teenage girls loved the trail.

I loved it here! A ton of little crabs came in with the tide which was really cool. And other wildlife which was nice. I'd recommend an adventure here.

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... More
