Don't miss crab traps when drop by this pier park. I caught 2 crabs: 1 redrock and 1 dungeness for lunch. Old access trail to the pier was closed, instead, could access to the pier through this park. Could find parking spot near the park...More

When you walk into the area from the parking lot do not be disappointed. Walk to the back of the park and on the left hand side is the start of the Boardwalk. It can be access by wheelchair. There are several runs of walkways...More

Ed Macgregor Park looks like a pretty typical urban park when you first arrive - flower beds, a lawn, some little paths and a large open-air theatre (and the usual vandalised washroom and signage) will make you say "hum-de-dum". However, if you follow the trail...More

Small parking lot- I can imagine will be busy in summer. A walk down to the ocean then a nice walk along boardwalks over the water. Very pretty. A climb back up though for those less abled.

We arrived mid morning and parked in their designated parking lot a 75 metre walk to the entrance. The park is named after the first Sooke mayor. The local school children made a tile mosaic at the entrance which is nice. They have beautiful perennials,...More

Nice easy walk on switchback trail with a rewarding long peer on the water to enjoy or throw out a crab trap. A must see for Sooke visitors.

Great for a quick walk with a view. This Park and Pier is wheelchair friendly but kind of steep coming back up. You could also head to the crab docks to do some crabbing. Don't forget your camera.

Sorry, I'm not sure about crab fishing from the shore. There is a big long pier, I know people fish off the pier a lot, and I think I have seen crab pots in use. You have to watch out though, the harbour seals will try to... More
