Linley Valley Parkland

Acquisition of Parkland in Linley Valley

In Spring 2014, Council directed City staff to acquire land in Linley Valley for an expanded park system. Increasing development on the edges of Linley Valley fueled a strong desire from members of the public to preserve the majority of the remaining land in a nature state. The parks is now over 400 acres in size.

A planning process for this park began in 2017 by City of Nanaimo staff with assistance from the Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Research Institute, Vancouver Island University and private consultants.
