Description

Established in 1963, the waterfront Community Park is the jewel of Parksville. The park land is steeped in history; Parksville's namesake, Nelson Parks, had a small shack near the land that currently makes up the Community Park. It is said that at a social event in his home, he remarked that it looked as though everyone around was present, so the settlement should be called 'Parksville'. To this day, the 39 acre Community Park lives up to its name and remains a gathering place and site for events and festivals. There is plenty of space on the beach for everyone and the park offers recreational facilities to satisfy the whole family. The park features a waterfront walkway, washroom facilities (shower available in the summer months), horseshoe pits, kite field, Lacrosse Box, Lion's Venture Land Playground and Waterpark, Picnic Shelter and Gazebo, Skate Park, Sports Field and Ball Diamonds, tennis and volleyball.
