About the Park
Gabriola Sands Park has two sandy beaches and large manicured grassy lawns. There is a day-use area complete with picnic tables, pit toilets, a cold water hand pump (water must be boiled, filtered or treated prior to consumption), two sandy beaches, a parking lot and a playing field.
The designated swimming areas on the sandy beaches are great for shallow, salt-water swimming.
There are a few tables available within this park, but also many other places to sit by the water and enjoy a casual picnic.
There is no camping permitted in this park.
There are no fires allowed in this park.
