Neck Point Park is one of Nanaimo's most popular parks. It's located near the north end of the city off of Hammond Bay Road. The area was the site of many vacation cottages used by residents of the city over 40 years ago.The last piece of the park was just acquired by the city, and it's now become a popular setting for weddings where it overlooks Hammond Bay, Piper's Lagoon and Shack Island. At low tide, the "neck" gives walking access to the rocks off shore.
Westwood Lake Park Most of the 6 km trail is level, making it an easy walk or jog. It is also a good spot for an afternoon of swimming, kayaking, or just relaxing.
