Golden Bucket Contest

Explore your parks and trails! You could win some great prizes!


Step back into time and visit Nanaimo's Chinatown of past. A MOUND where families spent time with their kids having a blast. Renamed a term for wealth and social distinction. This park remains a tribute to those who had vision. 


  • Each Wednesday from May 6 to July 29, follow the Golden Bucket each week by watching for a new clue on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and on the City of Nanaimo web page.
  • Use the clue to find the Golden Bucket sticker hidden in one of our parks.
  • Once you find the Golden Bucket sticker, use a QR App or your camera on your smart phone for a question related to that particular location.
  • Submit your answer about this park and qualify to win some fun weekly prizes or the GRAND PRIZE of a 3-hour Kayak Tour for you and 4 of your friends courtesy of COASTAL EXPRESSION ADVENTURE CENTRE valued at $300!
