When you go to Barnett, it feels as though you have left the city. Just a short drive away and free parking to enjoy a beautiful walk. This is my dogs favourite place for a swim and a good social setting for pet owners. Though the whole park is not dog friendly, there is a large portion that allows on... More

What a gorgeous place for a stress relieving walk, good for soul, all the fresh air and ocean walk. Washrooms at each end, off leash dog area where you see dogs jumping into the ocean in any season. Summer is dicey for parking as the park fills up fast but otherwise, lots of parking. I love it here.

On a whim we stopped by one evening in August hoping to see the sunset . The parking area is on the south side of the train tracks and it's a short walk in to the park . There is a road you can use to unload whatever you will need on your visit and then park up in the... More

It's beautiful here and a great place to go for a walk. I usually walk here in the spring and summer with my family. The only down side are the geese. They can be aggressive if you have food and their poop is EVERYWHERE.

Tranquil inlet popular for picnics and family events on a nice beachfront with trails to walk adjoining the Transcanada Trail. A perfect place to relax and enjoy nature by yourself or with those you love.

Dogs are not welcome in most of the Eastern part of the park, and it's quite a walk from the parking lot down to the western edge, where dogs are allowed off leash. Our only regret was taking beach chairs and a lot of gear to carry for the afternoon, only to have to shlep it with the dogs on... More

First of all there is a dog of leash part of the beach. Then you have a smaller beach, but perfect for kids. Also trees if you don't enjoy staying in the sun. And the view...well that's amazing! Great for evening walks, just enjoying the nature.

Very clean and the beach front is lovely. The view is amazing so bring a beach chair and chill out. Our kids loved walking along the beach and discovering shells and starfish. As I'm a sand snob, the only complaint is that it's a bit pebbly so bring your Crocs.

This park is off a very busy highway but has lots of room, plenty of shade, washrooms and a terrific view of the harbour. Lots of grassed areas provide plenty of room for families and gatherings. When you leave Barnet Highway turn immediate left to access the top parking lot. If you go to the right it leads to two... More
