Upgraded playground equipment at Parksville Community Park now open for fun

‘Harbour Town’ includes 6 slides, a pirate ship, spinner and climbing structures

The fences are down and visitors are welcome at the Lions Ventureland Playground in Parksville Community Park.

Deb Tardiff, manager of communications for the city, indicated via a release on Monday (Jan. 31) children were loving the new equipment following a safety inspection earlier in the day.

The city’s operations staff are excited with the new centrepiece, called ‘Harbour Town’, which is approximately 60 feet by 60 feet (18.28 metres by 18.28 metres), and includes six slides, a pirate ship, spinner and climbing structures.

The playground piece is based on ramps and hexagonal platforms fostering inclusive and intergenerational play to be accessible to users of all abilities. The design is based on a ship and dock theme fitting with the overall marine-seashore theme of the playground.

In 2021, through the British Columbia Tourism Dependent Communities Fund, the City of Parksville received a grant of $315,000 to improve the existing playground.
