Parksville Community Park Improvements Continue
May 12, 2023
Work on our many upgrade projects in the Parksville Community Park which began in March are now well underway including the construction of the new gathering plaza.
Areas of the park adjacent the gathering plaza project are unfortunately affected by construction. The washrooms near the gazebo remain closed and the splash park which would typically open this weekend will also remain closed until further notice. We are working with the contractor to do our best to see the splash park open as soon as possible but, in the meantime, nature’s splash park, the Parksville beach is always open!
Visitors to the park should expect significant disruptions over the next three months. We appreciate the patience of park users as we work to complete the planned projects which also include sports court resurfacing to start next week, a new washroom building and improvements to the volleyball events area, skatepark and pedestrian and vehicle connections throughout the 100-year-old Parksville Community Park. Additional portable washrooms are available throughout the park and visitors should expect intermittent closures to Sandcastle Drive. The gravel lot behind the curling club is open for public use.
The gathering plaza project will transform a central area in the heart of the park into a new vibrant space for visitors to gather, engage and celebrate. The gathering plaza project, along with other significant improvements, will make the park more enjoyable for users, improving safety and accessibility while addressing the need for multiuse facilities.
