    This is a beautiful beach side park with plenty to do, for all ages! The water park and playground is great for kids and parents can relax on the nearby picnic tables. They also have a beach volleyball league, and of course the beautiful beach. When we were there, it was a really low tide, and the beach stretched out for a couple kilometres. It was really nice to see people playing in the shallows.

    What a great public space! Bring a kid. It has the largest and best equipped playground I've ever seen. Small water park, and right next to the beach. Food trucks on the weekends, and ample parking.

Where to stay in Parksville

Most accommodations in the town center look over the Strait of Georgia. Here, along Island Highway, you'll find primarily chain hotels, resorts, and motels offering clean and comfortable lodgings within walking distance of the town's amenities. If you want to enjoy the region's pristine nature, you can find more interesting accommodations just east down the highway, around the border of Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. Beach resorts with swimming pools, quaint holiday cottages, and secluded forest retreats provide easy access to both the beach and the national park.
