Must see · Park · Nature / Park
Rosewall Creek Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada, located northwest of the community of Bowser. The park is situated along picturesque Rosewall Creek, south of Fanny Bay on central Vancouver Island. The park features a mixture of coniferous trees interspersed with striking broad leaf maple trees. One of the best times to visit this park is in the fall when the color of the maple leaves makes an attractive backdrop for photographers.

This small day-use only park incorporates the Lieutenant Ian Philip McDonald Picnic Area (managed by BC Parks), honouring a soldier from nearby Fanny Bay who was killed in WWII's Normandy Invasion (see photo for details). Two picnic areas on either side of the creek are connected by a short riverside trail; one overlooks the creek and the other is situated at its edge.

  • Such a beautiful place to take a stroll. The river is unbelievable with crystal clear water while the trail itself is really peaceful. Good place to walk a cat.
  • Great rest stop along the road. Worth a stop if you need to stretch your legs but not a ton to see. What is here is beautiful though. Slow moving cute river with an old railroad tracks bridge too.
