Things to do...: You will never run out of things to see and do in Parksville, especially if you enjoy being outside.

The city came by its name honestly: it maintains 30 urban parks! What's more, seven of BC's most beautiful provincial parks, as well as a number of local and regional parks, are within easy reach. Most of the larger parks in the area feature walking, hiking and/or biking trails, while many have superb, sandy beaches, picnic areas and other amenities.

Some of the warmest saltwater swimming conditions north of California are to be found in Parksville, so it stands to reason that swimming and diving are popular pursuits. The area is also known for its first-rate kayaking, canoeing and fishing opportunities.

You certainly don't have to spend all your time outside: Parksville is packed with art and crafts studios where you can watch artists and artisans at work.

Air and land activities: Parksville's beautiful natural surroundings and temperate climate allow for all sorts of outdoor activities. Laid out along the coast and near a complex network of freshwater lakes and rivers, it's an excellent base for birding and hiking expeditions. It's also arguably the best place on Vancouver Island for mountain biking thanks to Top Bridge Park - the only park on the island designated for mountain bikes. It's also a popular destination for picnicking and swimming. If you want to camp, there are many campgrounds to choose from in the area, some on private property and some in provincial parks. The city is well situated for golfing trips, too, as six courses are within a 25-minute drive from downtown.

Natural Sights, Parks and Wildlife: Parksville is aptly named: despite its small size, the city maintains two large parks and 28 neighbourhood parks. It's also within striking distance of a number of impressive provincial and regional parks.

Cathedral Grove (in MacMillan Provincial Park) contains one of the most accessible stands of old-growth Douglas-fir trees in BC. Some of the trees are 800 years old, while one is more than nine m (29 ft) in circumference! Walking among those giant trees is awe inspiring.

Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park is particularly well suited to family outings. It's famous for its beach, which, at low tide, becomes a stretch of sand almost a kilometer (about half a mile) wide. Its picnic area is well equipped with tables, a shelter and an adventure playground. It also has lots of easy walking trails that wind through old-growth forest, along beaches and past a pretty heritage farm.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Had the most relaxing time with the girls from the office. The cottage is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. Truely enjoyed sitting on the deck in the afternoon and cozing on the couch with the fireplace in the evening. The walk to the beach was very nice, and scenic. The girls from the office will have to spend some time at the cottage next summer.

Fantastic Accommodation - best to date

  • 5 of 5
Home from home accommodation, fully equipped with all the comforts of home (inc xbox). The photos don't do the accommodation justice, the location is great, but while near a main road, you don't notice the noise in the property or outside on the patio; and WOW, LCD screens in all the bedrooms. Cleanliness and quality of the accommodation is exceptional and the accommodation is actually larger than what the photos show. You would be a fool not to book this place as you're not far from all the local attractions, but would suggest a visit to the tourist info place nearby on what to do. We walked through the woods to the local beach nearby which was nice. We even tried the onsite Crazy golf, which was fun too (2 courses to choose). After our 4 day stop we didn't want to leave, but this was a great way to start our 3 week vacation to Canada and America.

Family vacation, July 5th-12th, 2008

  • 5 of 5
Our holiday at the cottage was wonderful!! Beautifully decorated and supplied with all the comforts of home...PLUS more. Having two bedrooms and two full bathrooms was great. Our son took over the loft area, with the X-BOX 360 and a TV there to use, it wasn't a big surprise. Our daughter loved having her own bedroom, but enjoyed going up to the loft to play games too. It was great to be able to bring our dog, who loved everything, including the many walks around the little community. The shops, tea/coffee room and the mini golf were great to have so close and all the people were very friendly. A quick drive to the beach area where we wandered around looking (and finding) for shells and crabs! Thanks for keeping the place so lovely and making it a great place to come with our whole family. We will be back

absolute gem

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and i had the pleasure of staying here for a weekend in August and truly enjoyed ourselves!
It was wonderful to relax in such a comfortable, luxurious cottage. The location is the perfect distance from all Parksville has to offer; it's a minute's walk from the beach, the property itself is beautifully maintained and in a quiet location and the owners have spared no expense in ensuring that this cottage meets all of your expectations. We could not believe how beautifully decorated the space was!!
We are STILL raving about this place, and will return again next year :)

Best weekend all year

  • 5 of 5
A lovely, fully-furnished getaway--more luxurious than home itself. We had a great weekend at the cottage, and are planning on renting in summer 2008.

Just steps to the sandy beach at Rathtrevor Park.

Groto Spa is a full service spa just a short stroll from the resort.

A round of mini golf at Riptide Lagoon is always a hit with the kids. Don’t forget a double scoop ice cream cone to celebrate after the game.

Only an hour away, Mount Washington Alpine Resort will take you a mile high and put a smile on your face as you ski down. (Seasonal skiing, mountain biking trails and activities year around).

Golf year around at one of the many landmark golf courses in the area only moments away.

Ocean Kayak and other seabearing adventures await. Fishing charters and whale watching are popular attractions.

Long Beach Tofino (2hrs) is where the surfers go to 'hang ten'. Boards and gear are easily rented in Tofino.

Victoria (2 hrs) has a little taste of Old England boasting double decker buses and 'high tea' at the Empress Hotel. Take a stroll around the inner harbor and sample the shops and local fare along Government St.
