Colliery Dam Park is one of Nanaimo's larger destination parks popular especially in the summer as a fresh water swimming spot. It is also a dog walking destination as the trail around the upper dam is a designated dog off leash area- 6am to 10am and then again 4pm to dusk daily. There are some steep trails and narrow bridge crossings along the upper dam trail.
