Two of our favourite ocean side parks are Manley Creek and Cherry Point Nature Reserve. Wonderful for walking, beach combing (at low tide) a picnic, bird watching and a photographers delight. Only 4-6 minutes in each direction of Valley Meadows. There are two walks that you can take from each park, 8.6 km or a shorter 5.8 km loop.
