Shoreline Enhancements in Neck Point Park

Jan 13, 2015

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)
