The park is a long narrow spit with narrow shoreline on either side, paths, a large field in the centre, picnic tables and bbq spots and outhouse washrooms. The road in is a narrow dirt road with parking areas, ending about half way down the spit with a large parking area at the field.
The west side looks over Drew Harbour, which is right next to Heriot Bay. There are often boats moored out in the Harbour, and the west side has nice pebble beach areas, perfect for swimming. This is the side where the picnic tables are located.
The spit is wonderful in all seasons, and is a fabulous place to spend a day, or an afternoon, or even an hour.
It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Pass It On!
