The off-leash dog park is a short hike on a nice trail around the upper lake (above the dam). There are several places around the lake where your dog can safely swim. The closest parking to the off-leash area is a small lot off Nanaimo Lakes Road.
We really enjoyed this park because it gave us a chance to stretch our legs on the 0.8km trail around the lake and it gave Avy lots of opportunities to swim.
The lower area of the park has a lot more trails if you're looking for a longer hike, but you will have to leash-up your dog.
