Premier Listings for Roberts Memorial Park
Roberts Memorial Provincial Park is a 14-hectare park located southeast of Nanaimo on southern Vancouver Island.
Like many small parks that were gifted to the province in remembrance by area families, an atmosphere of transcendent serenity permeates Roberts Memorial Park.
The park contains unique sandstone ledges. These ledges are part of the geological heritage of Vancouver Island and represent ancient sea beds. The ledges serve as a haul-out location for sea lions.
The solitude is broken only by the barking of sea lions offshore and the mewling of sea gulls, great blue herons, and the occasional Pacific Loon.
A peaceful walk through second-growth forest leads to a sandstone beach. Picnicking, swimming and fishing are pastimes enjoyed in this serene little haven. This park does not have a boat launch. The nearest launch is at Boat Harbour in Nanaimo, approximately 5 km north of the park.
Salmon fishing from the rocks is a popular activity at this park. Fishing is permitted as per provincial and federal fishing regulations. All anglers should check the current regulations issued by Fisheries and Oceans Canada prior to fishing. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
Facilities are limited to picnic tables, a washroom and a hiking trail. Camping in the park is not permitted.
Roberts Memorial Provincial Park is located 11 miles (17 km) southeast of Nanaimo on Yellow Point Road, 2 miles (3 km) beyond the coastal settlement Yellow Point.
