Vehicle access is limited to parking on the shoulder of Ships Point Road. Vehicles are not permitted to park in the fire lane. The unopened road right-of-way named Aboyne Road is located across from the park and provides unimproved parking and foreshore access.
This small neighbourhood park features a second growth forest of mixed Douglas fir, Western red cedar, grand fir, and broad leaf maple. The understory consists of huckleberry, salal, sword fern and oceanspray depending on available sunlight. Ground cover consists of Oregon grape, pathfinder, and vanilla leaf.
The park was created at the time of subdivision in 1966.
