Outdoor Activities

From being a Salish Indian village to a coal mine, sandstone quarry to a saltery and a railway resort before becoming a provincial park in 1961, Newcastle Island Marine Provincial Park is full of history and culture besides being a scenic outpost. The shoreline peppered with beaches is overshadowed by sandstone cliffs. One can only access this park either through a footbridge or boat. Once you explore the island, the disparity in the interior laden with Douglar Firs, maples and oak trees will amaze you. Check out their interpretive boards to know about this place's history. Go hiking, biking and swimming. Fishing, picnicking and camping are allowed. There is also an adventure playground on-site. Don't miss this wonderful park that promises a fabulous outing for the entire family.
