Cooper Cove Park is in the seaside community of Sooke, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This small mud and rock bay is a good place to launch a personal watercraft to set off to explore the Sooke Basin. A historical society sign can be seen in this green space. The Stickleback Eatery and kayaking rentals can be found beside this green space while the Shell service station is slightly further along the Sooke Road.
