Rivers Edge Neighbourhood Parks and Trails

Share your thoughts on the future plans for parks and trails in the Rivers Edge neighbourhood.

The Rivers Edge neighbourhood contains ten community parks owned by the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN). Currently they are all undeveloped lands and contain a mix of wooded areas, stormwater and drainage features, and informal trails. For a context map showing these parks, please see the Documents tab.

The neighbourhood also contains a few developer-built landscape features that are located on provincially owned lands (Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure). These include the entrance pillars on Kaye Road, the landscaped area at Kaye Road and Rivers Edge Drive, and the roadside trails on Kaye Road, Rivers Edge Drive, and Peterson Road. These features are not owned or managed by the RDN.

In 2022, Electoral Area G has a provisional budget of $110,000 for park and trail improvements in the Rivers Edge area. We are seeking public input to help determine the community’s priorities for how to improve the parks and trails within the Rivers Edge neighbourhood. We are also looking for broader ideas and suggestions that can help guide future decisions in how to improve the parks system in the Rivers Edge neighbourhood.

All residents in Electoral Area G contribute to the funding of capital projects and parks operations for Community Parks throughout Electoral Area G. For example, this could include construction of a new playground or maintenance of a trail. Electoral Area G encompasses the neighbourhoods of Dashwood, French Creek, San Pareil, and Rivers Edge.

For more information regarding funding and the budget process, please visit the RDN Budget Talks Get Involved Page.
