Cedar boasts stunning and educational provincial parks, which both residents and visitors take advantage of year-round. Roberts Memorial Provincial Park features a lovely 1km trail through mature Vancouver Island forest to the beach overlooking the scenic Stewart Channel. Residents often watch for sea lions, great blue herons, bald eagles, and other birds. Unique to this park are the sandstone ledges; an integral part of the geological heritage of Vancouver Island.
The Petroglyph Provincial Park allows visitors to travel back in time, over 1,000 years ago, with traditional prehistoric First Nations carvings. An interpretive area with information boards helps visitors decipher the petroglyphs, as many of them were made for meaningful purposes before the people had written language. Children and history buffs enjoy making ‘rubbings’ of the petroglyphs, by gently placing paper or cloth over the carving and lightly rubbing a crayon or wax to form a reverse impression.
As well, the Cedar Yellow Point area boasts an abundance of true West-Coast style galleries, crafts, and culinary shops. A wonderful place to reside in peace and to visit!
