Sargeant Bay Provincial Park
Introduction to Sargeant Bay Park

Sargeant Bay Provincial Park offers a remarkable diversity of recreation, combining nature appreciation and physical outdoor experience. It includes a sand and gravel beach, a wetland, a salmon-bearing creek, forest, a pristine forest bog and well-planned connecting trails. While these are qualities in their own right, they become increasingly more valuable as the population around the park increases. Most of the land bordering on the park is residential or zoned as such.

The park was established in 1990. It was expanded to include Triangle Lake in 1996 under the Protected Areas Strategy.

When the park was established, BC Parks staff had the site cleared of old buildings and boats. The beach access road and parking facilities were improved, and a pit toilet, a gate and signage were installed. Park maintenance services were provided during the summer months.

Management of the park has relied heavily on contributions from the Sargeant Bay Society. After 12 years of promoting the case for provincial park status, the Society proposed and implemented rehabilitation of the wetland. They built a second access path to the beach and hiking trails along Colvin Creek and to Triangle Lake. The addition of Triangle Lake to the park, under the Protected Areas Strategy, was a Sargeant Bay Society initiative. The Society has contributed to trail maintenance, has initiated an invasive plant control program and has organized many nature interpretation events.
