Diver Lake is a small suburban lake located just northwest of the Nanaimo city center and is accessed via Bowen Road and Labieux Road. This quiet, centrally located neighbourhood is close to all of Nanaimo’s amenities in the North End, schools, shopping, etc., and the South End’s cultural areas. The two main highways in the city, the Nanaimo Parkway and Island Highway, are easily accessed to provide easy transportation around the city. Although considered an historic neighbourhood with mature, established homes, there are new subdivision popping up; combined with the area’s reasonable housing prices, it’s becoming an affordable option for new homeowners and family living. The houses on the rocky ridge bordering Long Lake are desirable homes to live in with frequent sunlight and some private docks.

Ammonite Falls - These beautiful falls are hidden among trees and canyons buried at the bottom of Mount Benson. Enjoy a semi-intense hike through the forested area to discover 3 significant waterfalls. The falls were named for the fossils found there thought to be ammonites, snail-like creatures from the Paleozoic and Mesozoic era.
Camcrest Park - Camcrest Park is a very family oriented park in a predominantly natural setting. The playground is the main feature here consisting of a climbing structure, slides, monkey bars and swings with benches to the side to sit and watch the kids play.
Diver Lake - This Lake is located between the Country Club Mall and North Town Centre on the left. It is home to beautiful wooden pathway, a playground and an area with jumps for bike riders. It’s a great place for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy bird watching. Pack a picnic and enjoy as the kids play the wind breezes by.
Lantzville Foothills - Just north of town lay the Lantzville Foothills. The Foothills provide a 7km hike or a shorter 4km loop and million dollar views of Nanaimo and the ocean. Some residents are concerned that these viewpoints will not be available to the public much longer, however the various developers that plan to build on the land have promised to reserve the peaks of the hills as parkland.
Long Lake - One of the busiest swimming “holes” in Nanaimo on a hot summer day is Long Lake. The size of this lake is easily underestimated, but rowers, swimmers and boaters realize just how big it is once they hop in and move around it. The houses on the rocky ridge bordering Long Lake are desirable homes to live in with an abundant amount of sunlight and some private docks.
Rutherford Ridge - Rutherford Ridge appeals to all those interested in rock climbing or simply getting their heart rate up! The magnificent views of the city of Nanaimo and the views of the mountain make it worth trekking up the rocky terrain.
