East Wellington Park was acquired by the City of Nanaimo in 2014. The site is 12.7 hectares and is currently an undeveloped park. It is zoned PRC-1 and lies within the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR).
A park planning process for East Wellington Park is underway to determine appropriate park uses. Initial public consultation and background research has taken place, including an open house, survey, and environmental assessment of the site. A plan for the park is now being drafted by City staff.
Stay tuned for further opportunities to provide input on the draft plan this fall (2019)
