TV show filming moves to Parksville

Parking will be limited in Community Park Wednesday, June 21

Parking and traffic patterns in Parksville’s Community Park will be disrupted Wednesday when Chesapeake Shores Productions moves in for filming on the Hallmark Channel program.

Filming is scheduled to take place from 7 a.m. until early evening, the city said in a news release. In the morning, filming will occur on the beach near the waterfront gazebo and in the afternoon at the labyrinth at Arbutus Point.

A parking area near the beach on Beachside Drive and the parking area closest to the Arbutus Point will be unavailable to residents and visitors for most of the day, the city reported. Chesapeake Shores will have traffic controllers will be on site to assist. As well, equipment and trucks will be parked in the curling rink and gravel parking lots. Alternate parking is available in the large open parking lot behind the curling rink and near the sports field, as well additional parking along Beachside Drive.

Accessible parking will remain available, and the waterfront walkway for foot traffic will be open as usual.

“We are aware this will be an inconvenience for some,” city communications director Deb Tardiff stated in the release. “However, we are pleased to be able to accommodate this production in Parksville. We appreciate the public’s patience as we accommodate their requests.”
