Loudon Park and Trail

We always want to keep our information up to date. If you see any information we're missing, let us know at parksandrecreation@nanaimo.ca.


Loudon Park and Walkway is a popular spot year round for swimming, various paddling sports, walking, and fishing. On a hot summer day with the sandy beach and swimming float the park is a great place to be. The walking trail runs along the shoreline between Norwell Drive and 101st street. It is a gentle walk but is uneven in some sections.

The park is home base for the Nanaimo Canoe & Kayak Club as well as Nanaimo Rowing Club.
