This park is fabulous for families, for teenagers, for seniors…..something for all ages! There's a great boardwalk that spans the beach. There's a water park for the little ones, a big sand field for beach volleyball and other games, picnic tables, and best of all - a wonderful sand beach in the bay! There's a snack bar and the washrooms... More

A huge treeless park on the beach in Parksville. Lots of activities for children. A good dog-walking spot. Very busy in summer. Not so much on a Thursday in October.

We spent three nights in Parksville, every day we went for a walk to this park! This activity area was enjoyed by kids to the elderly, who were walking or spending time exercising on the out door equipment. The skate park is on one side or the kids play ground is well equipped for all to enjoy. Plus you can... More

I grew up on this beach. The tide goes out forever leaving a natural sandy beach strewn with sand dollars and warm tide pools for collecting shells. The park itself has a wide variety of playground equipment to accommodate all ages. There is a picnic area under the evergreens and the area is well maintained. The park has lots of... More

We visited here because of the sand castle competition. They were amazing and we had a great time taking photos and voting for our favorites. We were unprepared to find such a wonderful park in which to relax and enjoy the water. Plenty of seating and lots of lovely sand areas.

This is a very well designed park and obviously loved by the local community and visitors. We were there multiple times during the beach festival and sandcastle competition catching a concert performance, activities or a bite to eat. The children's playground is award-winning and impressive for a community this size - lots of whimsical and kid-friendly features. Loved the pop-up... More

We stopped by to have the kids burn off some energy and were surprised by how extensive the play area was. They loved the zip line and dozens of play structures. We also took some time to walk down the boardwalk, throw rocks into the ocean and watch the skateboarders. It's a great stop for any age.

It appears the LIONS club keeps it up and it shows. Other communities could learn from this one. There is a water park which is very fun for wee ones, and many many MANY adventure features for climbing, zipping and sliding

Watch the boats in the distance while relaxing on the beach. There's a great outdoor playground for kids!
