Park LocationMeadowood Community Park is located in the Corcan Meadowood Community, part of RDN Electoral Area F, at 1810 Galvin Place (accessed from Meadowood Drive, Corcan Road, Baylis Road, Hwy 1A).
Park SettingMeadowood Community Park is a 9 ha (22 acre) property, half of which is forested, and the other half is open and exposed due to the former land use as a gravel extraction site.
The surrounding features include Qualicum River, Little Qualicum Regional Park, Little Qualicum Provincial Park and a BC Hydro corridor. The park is also home to Dashwood Fire Hall #2.
Construction FundingThe Province of BC, through the Community Recreation Grant (2011) has contributed $54,500; the Regional District of Nanaimo is contributing $89,500, and the local Corcan-Meadowood Community has fundraised a total of $5,000 towards the project so far.
Phase 1 Park DevelopmentThe first phase of park development is now underway and will focus on northwest corner of the park and will include a natural play space, playground equipment, a sport court, landscaping and a small parking area. The RDN is working closely with the Corcan-Meadowood Community Association (CMRA) to develop the park. If you are interested in volunteering and/or donating to the project, please contact Elaine Peligren at email@example.com.
