Loon Bay Park

Loon Bay Park is located in the seaside community of Oak Bay, part of the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This small roadside park is located off Beach Drive and overlooks the marina of the Royal Victoria Yacht Club.  The park has a couple of park benches and beach access points.  A short concrete pathway with a couple of sets of stairs leads to the sand and mud beach. The lawn is adorned with a outdoor piano as well as a small monument.  There are Garry oak and Douglas fir trees that provide shade over the beach and the undergrowth of ocean spray, blackberry and snowberry bushes.  The splendid residential area around the park can easily be included as part of your walk.
