Pender Island Parks & Gardens
Brooks Point Regional Park is found on Pender Islands's southeastern tip. This undeveloped park features a rocky coastline compete with bluffs, forest and meadows. Highlights here include a sheltered beach, native chocolate lillies in the spring and expansive views of Boundary Pass, the San Juan Islands, Strait of Georgia and Mount Baker. There is an easy trail here that follows through woodlands and wetlands that leads to a beach (during low tide) and Gowlland Point. Poets cove is also walking distance from here.
This newly acquired nature sanctuary offers amazing bird watching opportunities, as well as beachcombing and picknicking. Medicine Beach is one of the few remaining wetlands in Southern Gulf Islands. The Virginia rail, an endangered bird, along with various other birds and animals, reside in the sanctuary.
