Parksville Community Park infrastructure improvements and upgrade projects received $655,000 in support from the Canada Community-Building Fund Community Works Fund. Funds were allocated to roads and sidewalks upgrades ($235,000), accessible trails and pathways ($200,000), park equipment and furniture ($100,000), resurfacing of the tennis/pickleball courts ($90,000), and refurbishment of the skateboard park ($30,000).


Major improvements and upgrades to amenities in the Parksville Community Park are now complete. We listened to concerns from park users who will now be better served with a new washroom building, improved accessible connections throughout the park, upgraded sports courts, new fencing and viewing platforms at the sand volleyball courts, a new gathering space, and improved drop off areas. In 2023, the Parksville Community Park, turned 100 years. Purchased in 1923 by the Parksville Women’s Institute from Joe Hirst for $3,500, the Parksville Community Park is home to many events hosted by community groups and organizations and welcomes thousands of visitors to the park and Parksville Bay beach each year.

    Hello, upgrades are still underway in the Lions Ventureland Playground, expected to be finished next week. A section of the playground does remain open for play. 

  • Share Hi there...I recall reading that the Lacross Pen in Community Park was also going to see resurfacing together with new lines painted for pickleball courts.

    Hello, the lacrosse box resurfacing was recommended and budget approved for 2023. The City has received additional information and user requests and staff are working on follow-up information for Council to be considered at a public meeting; no date has been set.

  • Share If I am correct, the existing washroom will be still kept? If so, in the case of both washrooms, will you include an automatic door button for the 'accessible' washroom? The existing one does not have one, making it nearly impossible for me, with my walker, to get in. The door is extremely heavy. I have to jam my walker in to hold the door and push my way through. I don't see how anyone in a wheelchair could do this. on Facebook Share If I am correct, the existing washroom will be still kept?

    Hello, you are correct, the existing washroom will remain. The new washroom will be fitted with automatic door buttons for accessibility and as part of the projects in the Parksville Community Park, are looking at adding to the existing washroom facility.

  • Share What are the plans to protect and rehabilitate the large tree (I believe it’s a maple) that has the “Waterfront Walkway” sign next to it? The trees root zone has out grown it’s space. I’d like to suggest that an air spade be used to do a root excavation and the soil replaced with the proper amendments to improve the health and longevity of the tree. Maybe this is already part of the plan, if not it is a missed opportunity. on Facebook Share What are the plans to protect and rehabilitate the large tree (I believe it’s a maple) that has the “Waterfront Walkway” sign next to it?

    Hello. The tree is not within the scope of the project. Your question was provided to operations/park who advised, "they like the idea presented and will look to follow through on the suggestion". So thank you!
