Parksville is such a beautiful town. When I was younger, before I learned to enjoy things other than electronic, I hated living here, but it has really grown on me now. There is so much to do here if you want to be outdoors! The summer is the nicest time to visit, with the most to do. Unfortunantly, the town gets so busy, it drives us crazy! Have someone local show you around, show you all the "hidden" spots. They truly are the nicest. Parksville can be so many different things to different people. The locals here are mostly one of three things, NewlyWed, Nearly Dead, or stuck in the middle. Parksville's sister town, called Qualicum, about 5 minutes away, was voted the oldest town in canada, not the age of the town, but the age of the residence.
