    This surely must be one of the best, longest beach walks in Canada. The huge Douglas fir, spruce and cedar trees of the Park are amazing and right beside the beach. Excellent campground as well like all BC provincial parks.

    Beautiful city park with a great playground for kids. There is a nice boardwalk along the beach. At one end there is an area where people have built inukshuks

    Cute little place to stop and see cows, sheep, goats and bunnies. The automatic milking system is interesting and the gift shop has lots of cool stuff and yummy goodies. Good for a 30 min to 1 hr stop.

    we enjoyed the trails and the scenery. The falls were spectacular and the park was well maintained. Certainly a must if you are in the area.

    Lots to see at this marina. And stop by the shop to buy the freshest seafood. They have fresh and frozen and a nice variety. Definitely worth a visit!!

    Good beer and pizza. enjoyed a flight and a pizza with my family. It was very busy and hard to get a table though and service could be a bit friendlier.

    When we bring our grandkids to this place minutes from home tucked behind the Morningstar Golf Course, we head straight for the cows. Contented? Never have cows been better cared for. Even an R2D2 type robot moves around keeping things spotless. Visit the animals in the field or the rabbits in their barn, or the chickens roaming everywhere. Sit on the real tractors. Have a picnic in a beautiful shady spot. Or have a coffee or ice cream. Shop for cheese and other delicacies in the deli. Our grandkids love the toy store on a farm theme. All our gifts for friends are bought there. All are specially chosen. It’s all COVID careful. Never visit the area with kids without checking this out.

    We stopped by to ask a few questions about what is good to see in the Parksville area. The young lady at the counter was excellent. Very friendly and knowledgeable. If you have questions this is the place to get some back ground info. If they don't know, they can find. Ask away.

    Love Eat Fresh, buy all our meat and veggies - excellent.

    Stay away from the bakery counter's chicken pot pies and beef pies. They were once excellent, however the recipe has changed to all primarily potatoes and a few (2) pieces of meat. Pastry still good.

    I could barely move I was so tight before I went to see Karen. Honestly, the best massage I’ve ever had in my life!!! She has soothing, healing hands, and knows exactly how to give a deep massage to loosen your body up with Thai Yoga Massage. Also, she’s incredibly kind and a great conservationist. I highly recommend her and I found it very affordable. You won’t be disappointed!!!

    A lovely, family-friendly tour led by Gary, who's been living on the island for 40 years! We did the "Salish Sea Tide Pool" tour that was just the right pace and length for my family of four that includes a 7 and 4 year old. Would recommend this tour as the spot Gary took us to seemed other-wordly. Would definitely recommend! Thank you Gary for your patience and calmness and for showing us all the wonderous creatures we saw along the way.
