Regional District of Nanaimo - Community Parks and Trails

Community Parks and Trails

Community parks are for the local community to enjoy. Community Park land is typically provided as a result of subdivision and/or rezoning. Park development and maintenance are paid for through local taxes from each community (Electoral Area) or as an amenity contribution through a rezoning.

Public demand for better parks and trails has grown. The Community Parks and Trails Strategic Plan (CPTS) for the northern half of the Regional District (from Nanoose Bay to Bowser) was developed in 2013 to ensure that the community parks and trails in that area meet the needs of each community.

The 2022 Parks and Trails Strategy provides strategic direction for community parks across the region for the next ten years.
