|A growing, progressive community located on the sheltered eastern shores of Vancouver Island, just 37 km north of Nanaimo (on a newly opened new Island Highway) and BC Ferry Terminals to the mainland. The City's easy access to major transportation linkages helps to make it both a thriving place to do business and a popular vacation destination.
Residents place a high value on their community's spectacular natural setting, surrounded by beautiful beaches, mountains, lakes and rivers. Together, municipality and community strive to maintain and enhance the quality of life they now enjoy. And they make sure to have fun! The community annually hosts a wide range of recreational and cultural events and is central to a variety of golf courses. In the centre of our own Community Park is the popular Lion's Ventureland playground for the youngsters and an exciting new Skateboard Park for all ages. An excellent combination of retirement, business and recreational opportunities, facilities and services make Parksville a great place for people of all ages to live and to work!
