Lower Lantzville – Seaside Paradise
Located directly to the North of North Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island and South of Parksville; Lower Lantzville is a quaint seaside town along 4.5 km’s of some of the most beautiful coastline that Vancouver Island has to offer. With the coastal mountains on the Mainland as the backdrop and breathtaking views of the Winchelsea Islands, beach-combing on this section of coastline is very magical. Many of the beaches are composed of rock to explore, but there are a few that have beautiful sand, such as Sebastion Beach at the end of Sebastion Road.
There are many parks for when you are out and about including Copley, Huddlestone and Rotary Parks. Huddlestone has a giant playground with slides, swings and plenty of things for kids to climb on. It offers a pavilion for picnics and plenty of lawn area for running around. Huddlestone is even available for private functions and may be reserved by calling the Municipal Hall at 250.390.4006
“Lantzville is an area known for its small community charm and the residents feel very strongly about ensuring that it remains that way. It is a place where neighbours care about neighbours and a place where if you pass someone on the street, you are greeted with a friendly ‘hello’ regardless of whether you’re a known resident or just visiting.”
