Recreation and Parks facilities are provided through a partnership with the Regional District of Nanaimo and other member municipalities. If you are looking for a recreation program, a world class arena for skating, or an awesome swimming pool, or other recreational fun, the Regional District of Nanaimo has a program or facility for you!
The Regional District of Nanaimo offers a variety of non-facility based programs, special events, and specialized services through the Recreation Coordinating function to the residents of District 69. Programmer's offices are located in Oceanside Place working with the community to develop, implement, and evaluate a wide range of programs aimed at all ages.
Key areas of programming include preschool and adult, children and youth, summer camps, special events such as the Terry Fox Run and significant involvement with the annual Kidfest event. Other key areas of service include a financial access program, a grants in aid program, inclusion for people with various ranges of abilities, a volunteer program, and field scheduling. Program participants and the taxpayers of Electoral Areas E, F, G, and H and the municipalities of Parksville and Qualicum Beach, all financially support the Recreation Coordinating function.
