Nanaimo River Regional Park
This 56-hectare conservation property is one of the few remaining natural forests along the lower reaches of the Nanaimo River. As a mature Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystem, the park is also the site of provincial research on improving Douglas-fir harvest stock. A developed trail network provides walkers, cyclists and nature lovers with room to explore, and the river offers swimmers a great place to go for a dip and relax along the riverbank. The southeastern portions of the park are dedicated to wildlife habitat.
