This board walk is accessed through Ed MacGregor Park. There is an accessible walk walk which switchbacks its way down the hill. Fantastic for everyone.

A very nice location for along walk with scenic waterway. Very popular with locals and a great break from the city.

This boardwalk is a charming addition to Sooke. Good crabbing too. Spot some wild life in Sooke Harbour or just take a leisurely walk along the boqardwalk and then up through the park. It's kind of the main drag so not obvious to tourists.

This board walk is so lovely and can be accessed right from the centre of Sooke! The Ed MacGregor park access is wheel chair accessible as well :)

We have enjoyed this beautiful boardwalk a couple of times when in Sooke. It is used a lot by fishermen, crabbers and strolling people. It gets you right into the ocean vista, not just seeing it from shore.

Easy walking along the shoreline on a well built boardwalk. Interesting views of sealife. Sunsets are amazing.

In all fairness to the community the boardwalk is definitely on the right track to becoming a tourist draw and for locals a great walking site. Presently access is tough from a limited (summertime) parking opportunity. Well made and built with purpose this boardwalk itself...More

This is a pleasant board walk that is pretty near the centre of Sooke. Its ok for a quick stroll and we saw a seal so that was cool, but perhaps not worth going out of your way. Quite a lot of steps!

They have a small parking lot at corner of Murray & Horne Streets where you can access the trail or head along Horne Street to Ed MacGregor Park
