The Barnet Marine Park provides open views and sightseeing opportunities consisting of passing marine vessels, birds and - sticking out of the water - an old historic scrap burner from the days when a pioneer mill once operated on the site.
There are some amenities in the Barnet Marine Park, Some of them include change rooms, outdoor showers, grassy lawns, swimming area, BBQs, washrooms, canoe launch, off leash dog area, fishing pier and various day use picnic sites (some in the shade and some exposed to the elements).
During the summer months a concession stand sometimes is open for business serving snacks and beverages. Hours vary so maybe a good idea is to pack a launch.
Along the shoreline of the Barnet Marine Park is a walking trail measuring about 1.5 kilometres. The trail is a level, easy going path suitable for all ages and fitness levels. On the east end of the park is a off-leash dog area with a walking dog trail called the Drummond’s Walk.
The beach, the grassy lawns and the ocean provide an atmosphere suitable for many outdoor summer activities including swimming, walking, jogging, dog walking, birdwatching, canoeing, kayaking, sailing and picnicking.
