The first settlers arrived in 1873 and an outpost was established on the Englishman River. It remained an outpost until it was connected via a road to Nanaimo. The town experienced a tourism boom in 1901 and that continues today due to the weather and the large and extraordinary beaches.

Parksville has a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and dry warm summers. There is every type of outdoor recreation available to residents including spelunking, kayaking, golfing, climbing, fishing, hunting and many other activities.

The city has every type of store needed in a city setting. There is a mix of small local owners and larger franchised stores as well.

Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the Strait of Georgia and the Inside Passage, Vancouver Island is known as “the Hawaii of the North”. With its vast wilderness, picturesque peaks, and temperate climate, this stunning locale is a paradise for those seeking serenity and natural beauty. A breadth of lifestyles are available here from charming coastal communities and pastoral estates, to busy urban centres.

Unlike much of Canada, Vancouver Island's weather is mild year-round. Spring comes early, with cherry blossom, tulip, and daffodil blooms lit by sparkling ocean sunsets. Summer is close behind, with the first sightings of migrating whales and local fishermen. In fall, a plethora of farms, vineyards, orchards, cideries, and breweries take local culinary culture to new heights. Come winter, cars loaded with kayaks, surfboards, paddle boards, skis, and snowboards come out to play, while golfers teeing off, and joggers taking to the trails remain common sights. Whatever the season, there’s plenty to enjoy on Vancouver Island.
