Pipers is a great spot to visit. A nice walk and a great beach to sit and relax. We can kayak, paddle board and swim.

Great place to visit for visitors and locals alike. See the ferry come to Nanaimo's Departure Bay. Lots of wildlife yet close to city.

We saw a mama killer whale and her baby there which is cool.
Parking can be a little hectic in peak times (especially near end of June with multiple school trips a day).
Definitely worth a visit.

Piper's Lagoon is one of the best parks in Nanaimo. It is peaceful, picturesque, and filled with nature. It is especially good for children because they can participate in free play by climbing on rocks (the original jungle gym). The trail is easy, and there are slight variations you can take along the way. A must see for all!

This park is much smaller than Neck Point, More locals walking dogs & less tourists from what I could tell. The bathroom here was better than Neck Point, even the parking is better. Good for a shorter, quiet trip to the water.
