Fabulous views and paths through this historic land mark in Esquimalt! For visitors, free parking at the boat launch. Also in very close proximity to Saxe Point park. Great for dog walking or just a stroll.

Beautiful and accessible rock climbing for about 100 feet of nearly vertical rock face. Paved walkways along the sea side and there are washrooms right at the boat launch parking lot too. Parking at that end of the park is free but paid parking elsewhere...More

In town for a conference and I found this park while on my run. Beautiful place to soak in the sun and wind down on the ocean. So much quieter than the downtown harbor. I would have appreciated a little more signage about the history.

Stunning 180 Degree ocean views. Lovely spot for a picnic in the summer. Decent amount of parking. On a windy day it's unlike anything else for drowning out the world so you can embrace the beauty alone in your thoughts.
