“The Park that has it All - right here in Parksville!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The community park here in Parksville is located right at the beach! There are many picnic areas for people to gather and eat together. There is also a children's play park and just new is an outdoor workout area for all ages to enjoy (however it is mostly adults that use it) complete with gym equipment that is designed for outdoor use! There is tennis courts and short trails that lead to the boardwalk along the beach. The boardwalk is lovely to stroll along and watch the ever changing landscape as the tide comes in and goes out. Watch eagles, blue herons, Canada Geese, Seagulls, Ravens and many other shorebirds at low tide. This is great area for couples of all ages, families, friends, business or even if you are just by yourself and you want a moment of solitude - this is a place for everyone! There is even a labyrinth hand painted on the concrete. Want more action? Right on the beach you can rent kayaks, wind surfing gear, paddle boards and more - lessons available as well! Very beautiful and worth visiting! There is plenty of free parking as well. There is something for everyone here in Parksville - you will come to visit but you will really want to live here!

“Nice place to relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

As a local, we visit here often. Can you beat the Ocean? I don't think so. The boardwalk is a great place to walk, talk to people and visit with a pooch or two. And when the tide is out, seemingly 5 miles or so, you can walk the beach forever! My only drawback, is when people, mostly younger, think the boardwalk is a place to ride a bikes and skateboards
Nice place, too bad there is no coffee place near by.
