Neck Point Park is one of Nanaimo's many natural gems. With it's rocky bluffs, scenic Garry Oak groves and stunning vistas, there is no wonder this is a premier destination for locals and tourists alike. On a very beautiful December day, the shoreline at Indian Beach in Neck Point Park was made even more picturesque when City crews conducted a foreshore restoration project that included planting a variety of native species. The purpose of this restoration project was to stop some erosion and enhance the natural shoreline environment.
Thanks to a grant from TD Bank, the following species of plants were planted:
- 50 Dunegrass (Elymus mollis)
- 45 Oceanspray (Holodiscus discolor)
- 40 Red Flowering Current (Ribes sanguineum)
- 50 Nootka rose (Rosa nutkana)
