Partners in Parks

The Partners in Parks Program (PIP) is a public participation program designed to bring the ideas and efforts of volunteers together with the City of Nanaimo Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture, in order to develop and improve our parks and open spaces. This program utilizes the talents, skills and energy of community partners and volunteers, to develop, maintain and beautify Nanaimo's new and old open spaces, parks and trails. 

There are many ways to get involved in the PIP Program:

Please note that many aspects of this program are under review by our current City Council.
