The Chase River estuary is within a wonderful park with 1.2 km of trails (two loops).
The shorter loop includes a boardwalk through tall grasses nearly at water level, in a sort of natural amphitheatre. The longer loop goes up some wooden stairs to a ridge by the railway.
This trail provides two kinds of views; there is the Chase River and its boardwalk on one side, and the huge open Nanaimo River estuary on the other side of the tracks.
