Great place to walk the dog! Paved paths encourage wheeled patrons, but in my experience everyone is super polite and the right-of-way is respected.
Excellent if you need somewhere to show off your Freedom Convoy leanings.. Quite a few unnecessarily large trucks for a city but I'm sure the fuel expenditure is worth it.
Plenty of places for bbq's without negatively affecting others

I walk in this park on a daily basis. Safe pedestrian paths and more planned events occurring. So lovely to be at the waterfront. Lots of picnic tables around and more trees have been planted in certain areas for more shade (in the next couple of years!). One major issue is lack of toilet facilities. There are a set of facilities in a building at the entrance to the park; however, they are a long distance away from where most people walk, hang out. Portable toilets need to be available. Also, there needs to be more daily maintenance of the park as a whole. A couple of crews empty garbage bins, but do vey little to pick up items throughout the park. And there needs to be a group who really knows how to maintain plants/gardens. Many weeds simply cut back rather than being eliminated which is killing the real plants. And the geese....so much of a feces mess! However, it is a beautiful place to walk, cycle, blade, and spend time at the water's edge.

A nice clean public park. Plenty of paths and well designed.
Ample parking however I suspect when the warmer weather, parking will be at a premium
Beautiful area with water, green space and benches

Great for a walk around the coastline. There is a nice playground, and the marina is always busy during boating season. If you have a canoe or smaller boat; there is an open dock you can use to launch it for a day trip.

One of the best places in the entire city. Astonishing views and plenty of things to do with friends. Definitely recommend for friends and family to spend some memorable times with.

Have always enjoyed our visits to the waterfront trails. Lots of parking, great views of the boats in the water and the long waterfront trail creates lots of good viewing. There is even a very good restaurant by the water, Williams, where we have dined many times. There are a few trails, one that is like a circular course and another that goes right from Pier 4 to Princess Points , several kilometres away. There is also a tour shuttle that follows the whole shoreline. Well worth the visit.

It's hard to believe that the powers that be in city hall actually got this park right (given the general disaster of the downtown). The kiddies can't swim in the polluted water, but there are lovely walks and great birdwatching...if you look out at the water from some of the headlands, you could imagine you are well outside the city.

I walk the paths of both Bayfront and Pier 4 Parks every day. Almost entirely flat geography so wonderful way to exercise for anyone. Great to see lots of people enjoying the space, regardless of weather. So lovely to look at the water along the way. Free parking if you have to drive to the parks. Toilet access is a problem at times as the hours don't always make sense and one set not open at all in the winter. A peaceful setting; bring your own food/beverages if you plan on staying for the afternoon. NOTHING available for sale, unless food trucks are allowed again during summer months.
