Neck Point Park
We're constantly trying to add more parks and keep our information up to date. If you have information about one we're missing, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Neck Point is a destination waterfront park for Nanaimo and the region. The park is recognized as an environmentally sensitive area and is well known in the community for its historic, scenic and natural features. Additional land was aquired in 2009 and the park now provides visitors with 36 acres of a waterfront setting to explore. Visitors will find rugged rock cliffs, with pebble bay beaches, and winding trails through Gary Oak groves. The park is a great location for photographers wanting to capture the essence of Nanaimo and the west coast lifestyle.
The park is also popular with scuba divers as an access road allows for drive up diving. Divers tell tales of an impressive array of sealife off the rocky headlands at the end of the parks namesake 'neck'. There is a deep water rock wall face that is reportedly home to a friendly octopus.
The headland area in the north section of the park is a great spot to watch for Orca and Sealions and otters. During herring season the beach is awash with the row (January).
