Old City

In the heart of Nanaimo just up the hill from the downtown core lies some of the most coveted real estate in town. The historic Old City’s restored craftsman bungalow homes sit among neighbourhood parks at the edge of the Old City Quarter, a retail district with specialty shops and restaurants in heritage buildings.

 The neighbourhood comes together each year for improvement projects and a spring farm fair where residents sell vegetable starts and enjoy live music and food. All types of recreational pursuits are nearby – from strolling the waterfront to hiking forest trails at Bowen Park or skating at the Nanaimo Ice Centre.
