Linley Valley Park
This wilderness park features many trails that lead through varied terrain, from valleys to rocky hills. Located between Departure and Hammond Bay, the city manages only a portion of this parkland so it’s best to stick to the designated trails.
This park, located in the Oceanview subdivision, features a newly updated playground, picnic tables and a short loop trail through a grove of trees.
