Film production returns to Parksville

Community Park access to be impacted July 4-8

The City of Parksville has announced that the Chesapeake Shores Productions will be filming in the Parksville Community Park from early Tuesday morning, July 4 until midday Saturday, July 8, and that parking and some park access will be impacted.

Set up and filming will occur in close vicinity to the waterfront gazebo, on the grassed area and beach nearby, and on the waterfront walkway near the gazebo, the city said in a news release Thursday, June 29. Setup will take place on July 4 and teardown on July 8.

The first parking area near the beach on Beachside Drive will be unavailable to residents and visitors during this time and, as with past filming, Chesapeake Shores will have signage and traffic controllers on site to assist. As well, production equipment and trucks will be parked in the lot alongside the curling rink and will also take up about half of the gravel parking lot behind the curling rink. Alternate parking as well as accessible parking is located near the sports field, the playground and on Beachside Drive.

The Community Park, including the waterfront walkway, will be open for foot traffic as usual.
