Natural Areas

Nanaimo has an abundance of natural beauty and open spaces. We are fortunate to live in a place where natural areas can be found not far from our doorsteps. Over half of Nanaimo's parks are undeveloped and natural. The City of Nanaimo has a number of policies and programs we use to protect, restore and educate the public about our natural areas. There are also significant sites that are recognized conservation lands that are managed by the Nature Trust of British Columbia.
