Premier Listings for Rosewall Creek Park

Creek Provincial Park is a small 63-hectare park straddling both sides of Highway (19A) between the south end of Mud Bay and Deep Bay on Vancouver Island.

Rosewall Creek is an important winter habitat area for waterfowl and shorebirds. Adjacent Mud Bay is a shallow tidal bay with extensive mudflats exposed at low tides. At its south end the bay deepens slightly and broadens into a tidal lagoon, part of the Baynes Sound wetlands complex. Rosewall creek meanders along the eastern side of the bay and empties into the sound over a broad delta of silt deposited primarily during peak winter run-offs.

Baynes Sound is used extensively by Western Grebe, Common Loon, Trumpeter Swan, Brant, Mallards, American Wigeon, Green-winged Teal, Bufflehead, and mergansers are common. Bald Eagles congregate in large numbers at the mouth of salmon streams during winter. A colony of Brewer’s Blackbird have been known to nest on a gravel bar in Rosewall Creek.

The park uplands are heavily wooded with second growth forests of Douglas-fir, grand fir, and western red cedar. Western hemlock and sitka spruce are also common. In more open sites, in the understory and along creek beds, big-leaf maple, red alder, salmonberry, wild rose, snowberry, and skunk-cabbage are found.

The park is wheel chair accessible and provides a picnic area, walking trails and the opportunity for anglers to try riverbank casting at the entrance to Qualicum Bay.

The park is located 19 miles (30 km) southeast of Courtenay, 15 miles (24 km) north of Qualicum Beach and is accessed directly off Highway 19A.
