Osborne Bay Regional Park is home to calm waters, pebble beaches, and ample fishing. The park is representative of the marine coastal landscape and provides access to the oceanfront in the community of Crofton. Off-leash dogs are welcome here year round.
Osborne Bay Park was formerly the Morton Family Farm. The original farmhouse was situated on top of the rise in the open field close to the bench by the parking area. A few fruit trees and ornamental trees mark the garden. The house was moved to the property bordering the north side of the farm. A member of the Morton family still farms part of the property for hay.
