This park features a sandy beach situated along the crystal clear waters of Ruby Lake.
This trail is all about the magnificent views of the Pender Harbour area and the Strait of Georgia. It is a fairly steep trail with a high level of difficulty.
The park has a small picnic area and stream and spawning habitat.
Please note that the connector trail through this park between Mintie Road and O’Brian Road is currently closed. Read more by clicking here.
The Homesite Creek trails are great for hiking, and it is unlikely that you will encounter many other people while exploring. The trail is open year-round and is beautiful to visit anytime. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash.
This small park has a sunny, grassy meadow, suitable for picnics, next to the salmon wintering pond. The trail hugs the bank of Anderson Creek which is perhaps one of the most productive salmon creeks on the Sunshine Coast. Best times for viewing the spawning salmon (chum and coho) are from late September to late December. This damp gully has a growth of moss, fern covered rock bluffs, and huge moss-draped Big Leaf Maples.
This small park is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in Langdale. In addition to picnic sites, the park has a playground and small walking trail. Dogs must be on a leash at all times.
