Maffeo Sutton Park is Nanaimo's signature park overlooking our world famous harbour. The park is a central point along the Harbour Front Walkway. The park hosts countless community special events. It is a great year round destination for walking, playground playdates and picnics.

Features and amenities include access to the walking trail, Playdock destination playground (limited wheelchair access), Swy-a- Lana lagoon and swimming beach (no lifeguards), Lions Pavillion covered stage, Spirit Square, ferry access to Newcastle Island ferry, and washrooms.

There are a number of public art pieces located throughout the park and along the walking trail.

A planning process is currently under-way for phase two of updates to the park.

The name remembers two individuals: Pete Maffeo and Joe Sutton. Pete Maffeo was a popular mayor and ice cream shop owner who was admired for community service and sport involvement. Joe Sutton was the caretaker of Deverill Square Park for many years.
