About ParksvilleWith its 1.6-kilometre-long (1-mi.) sandy beach on the Strait of Georgia, Parksville is a popular summer resort. Nearby Englishman and Little Qualicum rivers and parks, with scenic waterfalls, provide many opportunities for recreation, as do other area lakes, streams, mountains and parks. Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park offers a beach, camping and picnicking.
Artistic endeavors in sand are the main focus of the Parksville Beach Festival. Elaborate sand sculptures compete for prizes in July and August, and attendees can also enjoy fireworks, children's activities and a volleyball tournament.
