Picture a Park: Jack Point and Biggs Park

Feb 23, 2015 |

On the way to Duke Point Ferry Terminal, you will find Jack Point and Biggs Park


This 13 hectare (32 acre) park located on the mouth of the Nanaimo river estuary is a great spot for wildlife viewing. In addition to other species, bald eagles, sea lions, seals and even harbour porpoises have been spotted. 


The 2.5 km loop trail leads from Biggs Park to Jack Point includes some stairs and boardwalks.




 It also boasts excellent views of downtown, Protection Island and Gabriola Island.




Jack Point is named after Jack Doholt (1819-1905) who resided on the point for 40 years supplying Nanaimo with milk and hay. It used to be an island at high tide, but is now connected with Duke Point and Biggs Park.
