Nanaimo’s Neck Point Park was going to be a condo development but was saved to become one of Nanaimo’s best parks- and that’s saying something! Formerly a 50+ acre private waterfront estate, there’s seven separate beaches, so if it’s windy, there’s always a quiet bay.
Besides 2 legged animals, it also has regular visits from eagles, sea birds of all description, seals, sea lions, and orcas. It’s an underwater paradise too, and one of the main reasons Jacques Cousteau called Nanaimo the best non tropical place to dive in North America.
Take a spin around the park in this selfie style video shot with a GoPro StickCam.
