On a creek delta on the West Arm, there is a grove of rhododendron trees and shrubs. It had been planted by the John Marquis family shortly after the Second World War. They had been market gardeners in Nelson on Anderson Street. The rhododendrons have prospered and continued to bloom over the decades. On a fine day in the late spring or early summer, the little beach which gives access to the grove from the Lake becomes crowded with canoes, kayaks, and powerboats as the locals come to stroll among the flowers.
