Take a nice stop here for a great view of the harbor. There is plenty of free parking and places to relax.

King Park is a great area to sit and enjoy the sights and sounds along the waterfront. One may take a stroll or simply sit and relax. Great green space. Nice area to watch sailboats as they leave and enter the harbor area.

Lots of open lawn space with a couple of small beaches. Gorgeous views of the water and sailboats, and not at all crowded.

It's a great place to escape the rush of town. It is not a big park but worth visiting to relax and enjoy a picnic. Beautiful view of the bridge and harbour. What are you waiting for?

I stopped at king Park for a walk and to look for a geocache. It's a great place to walk with a nice view of the waterfront. This is a great place to spend some time in the sun.
