Community Information
Parksville has one of the most temperature climates in all of Canada, with sandy
beaches and activities galore for everyone from young families up to retirement.
Parksville has a slower pace of life, where people take time to enjoy the beauty of the area and the endless outdoor activities. The major centres of Nanaimo and Victoria are readily accessible via the Island Parkway, and regularly scheduled ferry, air and float plane services from Nanaimo offer easy access to Vancouver. Practice where the living is easy, and still have access to everything a big city has to offer just 2 hours away.
