  • Wonderful walkway and park. Very friendly and safe. Kept very tidy. Thx
  • Beautiful walkway. Favourite place to go walking. Love the view of The ocean and the shops
  • Clean and beautifully lit up at night. Enjoyed some local art while taking a romantic moonlit stroll along the water .
  • Maffeo Sutton Park is one of the nicest city parks in Nanaimo, BC with wonderful waterfront vistas, plenty of parking, which does fill up pretty fast, many seasonal events and things to do and see. I love doing my photography at this park. There are so many opportunities there for landscape, city skyline, people watching and macro photography. It has a nice area for younger children to play and swim. Parking is free for three hours. Make sure you print a parking meter ticket.
  • Beautiful place for a family. Lovely scenery and clean. Huge playground for kids, or you can watch the sea planes, go grab netting, swim in a safe sea pool area, walk along the waterfront and stop for ice cream or coffee.

Where to stay in Nanaimo

Stay at one of the guesthouses and inns lining Front Street if you want to be in the heart of the city, while also enjoying the waterfront at your doorstep. For a more natural ambiance, head north of the center along the coastal highway, where you can choose from a selection of inns and resorts boasting views over Newcastle Island. If you have a car and prefer an easy route out of town, stay at one of the motels lining Island Highway to the northwest of the center.
