The City of Nanaimo's trail network has over 170 kilometres of trails. Our trails connect well with our streets, designated cycle routes and local parks.
Several of Nanaimo's trails are multi-use with a paved hard surface that allow for a variety of activities such as biking, rollerblading, and walking. Multi-use trails include the E&N Trail, Parkway Trail, Harbourfront Walkway and Walley Creek Trail. Other trails are set in more natural setting and feature softer surfaces, such as Neck Point Park, Westwood Lake Park and Cable Bay Trail. They are suitable for walking and jogging, but access is more limited.
The City of Nanaimo Trail Implementation Plan outlines the purpose, methods, locations, priorities, design guidelines and construction and maintenance practices for developing and maintaining a comprehensive trail system. The ultimate goal is to build upon existing trails and develop a system that provides a variety of recreational and alternative transportation options to Nanaimo's residents and visitors. Ultimately, trails will provide connections to all areas of the city.
Our "Explore Our Parks and Trails" brochure includes a map and listing of some of our most popular parks and trails. Hard copies are available at all recreation facilities.
