Parks & Trails

Trails in Nanaimo go everywhere, from the oceanside to mountain summits. No matter what part of the city you're in, you'll find a walking trail or park close by, offering hours of quiet outdoor recreation.

Below you'll find maps to some of Nanaimo & Region's Parks & Trails. There are over 200 to choose from! To help narrow down the list, we've compiled a few of our favourites and we'll keep adding as we keep adventuring. Be sure to tag your park pics with #ExploreNanaimo and we'll share. We hope you have fun Exploring Nanaimo!


For more information about hiking trails, biking trails, or guided tours, stop by our Visitor Centre and pick up Parks & Trails brochure which features a map and details of all parks and trails in the area. Don't forget - our Visitor Centre is dog-friendly! We are located next to an off-leash dog park so pop in for a doggie treat after your furry friend has a play.
