Resthaven Park

 

Resthaven Park is in Sidney, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. Resthaven Park overlooks the waters the host the Fisheries’ Wharf and Marina in All Bay and contains some beautiful plant displays, grass covered knolls, and rock walls. The area is frequently used for picnics and by pet owners.  The play equipment includes toddler swings and a fenced area with an elaborate playset designed by Impland with a slide, elevated bridge and climbing bars.  There is a tennis court near the townhouses on the northwestern end of the park. Benches are available along the asphalt walkways in the park as well as several picnic tables.  The walkway starts near the wharf parking area follows the muddy shoreline of Shoal Bay in Tseham Harbor, part of the Haro Strait and the Salish Sea. The pathway continues around Resthaven Island part of Resthaven Linear Park.  Another interesting area to explore is the beach accesses off Armstrong Point.
