Uplands is a nice, well-established area first developed in the 1970’s and then again in the 90s giving it a good mixture of different home types, some with tree-lined streets. This neighbourhood is in the city and is one of the most unique when it comes to the landscape, including the homes in the Long Lake Heights area. It is close to Linley Valley, and there are many ocean parks nearby and rocky hillsides with beautiful views overlooking Long Lake, Mount Benson and in some areas, the Pacific Ocean. The Uplands area is also close to the Island Highway, which means you can be in Downtown Nanaimo in just a few minutes. Several amenities surround this area or are just a short distance away Nanaimo’s two major shopping areas, Woodgrove Centre, Nanaimo North Town Centre and Country Club Mall.

Linley Valley - Linley Valley is a hidden gem in Nanaimo. Features: major trail systems with wetlands, streams, natural woodlands, and meadows and bluffs on the interlinking trails. Cottle Lake is located in the parks and is home to several species of water fowl and a cutthroat trout.
Eagle Point - Eagle Point can be reached by people using several different trails that lead down to the same long stretch of beach. At high tide this beach can seem a bit boring, but when the tide is out, Eagle Point has big, beautiful, sandy beaches. The beaches are populated with huge trees that are home to some of Nanaimo’s eagle population; hence the name Eagle Point.
Neck Point - Neck Point Park is located just north of Pipers Lagoon. Like Pipers Lagoon, Neck Point is full of stunning ocean and mountain views. Neck Point is also a “hotspot” among Nanaimo’s divers and divers from out of town. The top of the small cliffs are a popular lookout to spy the otters “torpedo-ing” in the shallows. Park benches and picnic tables make it more comfortable for visitors trying to catch a peek at the sea lions and orcas that have been known to pass by.
Pipers Lagoon - This is one of the best Oceanside parks in Nanaimo. The lagoon is the size of three football fields. Pipers Lagoon has parking at one end of the lagoon and the small bank leads walkers between the lagoon and the surf. There are many viewpoints along the way that offer an overview of the lagoon and the outer coast. Onlookers can catch a sight of the fisherman’s cabins built in the 1930s on spectacular Shack Island at the end of the park.
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.
