Crawford Creek Regional Park

Crawford Creek Regional Park

Fishhawk Bay Road, Crawford Bay, BC

This recently established Regional Park consists of a significant wetland, cottonwood forest, easy hiking and mountain bike trails, as well as two gorgeous beaches. While the beach is now open to the public, note that there is not yet signage and the road access is extremely uneven and should be driven on slowly and with caution.

The wetland is known as a bird viewing area. 'Birders' from around the world who have visited our wetland are quick to indicate this is something special. You can pick up your copy of the 'Birding in Crawford Bay' pamphlet with over 92 listed species at the Crawford Bay Visitor Centre.

It is very important to stay on the trails while visiting the wetland. Please do not venture into the delicate fern or tromp through the muck. Dog must be in control at all time or on a leash. The Crawford Bay wetland is an important wildlife breeding site for ground-nesting birds from early April to mid-July. Dog running free can disturb breeding wildlife and their young.
