Projects Underway

Outdoor Theatre and Gathering Plaza
Expected completion 2022.
In July 2020, the City of Parksville received confirmation of the successful funding award of $1,263,521 through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, Community, Culture and Recreation Infrastructure Stream, for improvements to public spaces in the Parksville Community Park. The project includes construction of a new outdoor stage and a multi-use gathering space in the Parksville Community Park. These new spaces complement each other; the gathering plaza will be more contemplative, a space for people to meet for conversation and the outdoor performance stage will provide a focus for community and cultural events creating an exciting hub for entertainment and activity in the park. Construction of the gathering plaza will begin late 2021.
