Noted in the release are the current COVID-19 pandemic protocols for anyone wishing to host a special event. They are to submit a “COVID-19 Addendum to Special Event and Park Use Application,” and ensure that participants act in accordance with the guidelines as set out by the province.

A few of the city locations are as follows: Parksville Civic and Technology Centre grounds; Parksville Community Park; Springwood Park, Foster Park; off-leash dog park on Despard Avenue; individual city green spaces; city streets for walks, marathons, cycling events and parades.

For use of sports fields, lacrosse box and tennis courts, it is requested that they first contact the Regional District of Nanaimo’s Recreation and Parks Department at fieldbooking@rdn.bc.ca.

Interested parties can also obtain copies of the city’s special events policy and relevant application forms from the city’s website. For more information, contact the operations department at 250-248-5412 or publicworks@parksville.ca.
