About 15 mins west of Parksville, Englishman River Falls Provincial park is a great place to go for a leisurely stroll with the family in a forested area along the river. There are two waterfalls and some scenic stretches of river heading into a canyon.
The park is mostly used by day travellers including locals coming to a crystal clear pool with a few 15-20ft cliffs to jump from as well as two bridges. There is also a campground close to the river for those wanting to stay overnight.
The park is 97 hectares big.
Dogs and other animals must be on a leash at all times in the park and are not allowed on the beach areas.
