Tsehum Harbour Lagoon Park

Tsehum Harbour Lagoon Park is a small ecological reserve that includes the area of the mud tidal flats. A land area is mostly grass covered due to its location beside the Highway, Lochside Trail and McDonald Park Road. Tsehum Lagoon Park is part of the migratory bird sanctuary of Tsehum Harbour, also known as Shoal Harbour, which was established in 1931.  Fortunately the tidal flats are not favorable for development and they remain relatively rich with life providing food the fishes as well as birds and mammals in the area. This mud estuary is home to a variety of wildlife including Great blue herons, diving and bottom feeding birds, otters and the occasional seal. It is an excellent spot for seasonal bird and animal watching from shore or shallow-bottom boat, like a kayak.

Geographical coordinate N48° 40’ 36” W123° 25’ 48”

This park is on the corner of McDonald Park Road and the Highway #17, so it’s better to cycle or walk from a parking area elsewhere. There is no roadside parking.
