Craig Bay & Parksville

About Craig Bay

Craig Bay’s location within Parksville, feels like a secluded retreat away from the city, however, it is only a five to ten minute drive to quaint and unique shopping and restaurants, grocery stores, health care, arts and recreational centres, and all the other amenities that Parksville has to offer.  And with Nanaimo being the next larger city only a 15 minute drive away, it is easy access to more shopping and recreation opportunities, hospital, BC Ferries, and airport.  

The 152 acre Craig Bay property lines the shore of Craig Bay itself, with an easy footpath leading directly to the beach and the incredible views of the Straight of Georgia as well as the mainland mountain peaks.  Nestled amongst the 426 homes are natural and paved walking trails that wind through the community, with a mix of native foliage and landscaped features. This part of Vancouver Island is home to bald eagles, Canadian geese, deer, sea lions, and other wildlife that can often be spotted around the Craig Bay and Parksville areas. 

Craig Bay is an inviting and inclusive retirement neighbourhood offering all the amenities one could want in a lifestyle community. If walking, swimming, pickleball, tennis and various wine tasting, bridge and other social activities are on your list you, will find Craig Bay an attractive location to call home.
