The city’s many beautiful parks are a big draw for people considering a Nanaimo real estate purchase. One of the local favorites is Westwood Lake Park. The picturesque setting invites people to bring a picnic and settle in with good friends and good food to relax and shake off the pressures of work. The playground is an excellent place for kids to run, play, climb, and make new friends. Leashed dogs are welcome to accompany their owners around the park, and there is also an area set aside for dogs to frolic off-leash.
Everyone in Nanaimo Can Enjoy the Park
Walkers and joggers from Nanaimo enjoy the tree-lined trails around the park. A well-maintained, 5.5 km loop goes around the lake and is mostly flat and gives a nice, easy pace. There are also shorter loop trails. Bikes are welcome as well.
From June through August, swimmers can enjoy the lake and have the security of knowing a lifeguard is present. Non-motorized boats and electric boats are welcome, and fishing is permitted. A wheelchair-accessible fishing float is at the south end of the park. Washrooms and changerooms are on site.
