3. Hiking Neck Point Park and Colony Farm
We posted two new trail guides to the website in July (bringing the current total number of guides to 113)!
Neck Point Park
Neck Point Park is a popular area for walking and scuba diving in Nanaimo. The ocean side park features several beautiful beaches and scenic trails through Garry Oak groves.
The 36-acre park gets its name from the unique neck-shaped point that juts out between Indian and Last beaches. Watching the waters, it’s possible to spot sea lions and otters, and sometimes, even orca.

Colony Farm Regional Park
Another easy outing, Colony Farm is a popular place for walking, cycling, jogging, and birding. The park lies within both Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam.
Colony Farm is located between the Mary Hill Bypass and the Lougheed Highway. Colony Farm has a large network of trails that weave through the park and along the Coquitlam River. The park features large open fields, hedgerows, and has plenty of wildlife including over 200 species of birds.
