Parksville minigolf and bumper boats

Trip Information

On this trip we'll explore 2 of Parksville's most popular attractions, the Paradise Fun Park and the community park and beach! 


This quaint little town has 18 kilometres of beaches and the warmest water on the east coast of Vancouver Island, making it an ideal place for swimming, stand-up paddleboarding, and other water sports. At low tide, the community park is one of the best sandy beaches to visit this close to Nanaimo. It also has a skatepark, a big playground and volleyball courts!

Paradise fun park

With 2 exciting 18-hole golf courses to choose from and a picnic area and arcade on site, alongside splashing and bumping  in one of their bumper boats , this park is a definite fun for all!
