Wander the trails and pathways of the park to discover the world tallest free-standing totem pole, water fountains, an abundance and variety of gardens, duck ponds, a free putting course for golfers, a farm animal petting area for children, playgrounds for children, an active, outdoor musical pavilion, massive fir and cedar trees, a bald eagle nest, cricket pitch, lawn bowling, sports fields, and endless vistas across the strait. A special treat each spring is a visit to the west side of the park along Douglas Street to see the great blue heron colony. This massive bird has been designated as a species at risk by British Columbia's Ministry of the Environment, Lands and Parks so it's wonderful to see nature at its best and most precious so close to home. Mother Nature has strict rules, however, so it's not unusual to see the bald eagles invading the nests and snacking on a young, helpless baby heron. What a treasure to explore!
