Rathtrevor Park is a large wooded and beach area on the Georgian Strait. The beach is vast and provides much opportunity for walking, digging looking for small water creatures. The water is shallow and great for young children.

Even in the late fall the beach is beautiful! Great for a beach walk or taking photographs of our beautiful west coast.

but you have to haul your stuff a long ways through the endless beach if you want to make it to the shoreline ... which is hard work in the scorching sun, but well-worth the effort. LOTS of room for everyone, BUT NO LONGER dogs...More

Beautiful walk through the beautiful forest trails and beach areas. Wonderful views of the mainland mountains. A must to see and do and it is just on the edge of Parksville BC.

Dawn to dusk. No dogs slowed during the Brandt Gees Festival for the protection of wildlife. Great dog run the rest of the year. Not sure if the dates but think it's approx June.
