Despite the fact that homes for sale in College Heights are perched high above Nanaimo and that they're revered for their feeling of privacy, it’s a highly desired neighbourhood in part to its accessibility to easy transportation and amenities. Being located right across from the Nanaimo Parkway makes commuting for work and frequenting the North End malls like Country Club, Rutherford, and Woodgrove a breeze. Students of Vancouver Island University will enjoy how close the school is. As well, Downtown Nanaimo with all its amenities, businesses, and shops is only a six-minute drive away.
Outdoors enthusiasts and families love this neighborhood because of its proximity to some popular outdoor destinations. College Heights homes are close to Buttertubs Marsh, Colliery Dams, Morrell Sanctuary, Westwood Lake, and Westwood Ridge. In particular, the Colliery Dams are considered a wonderful destination to walk your dog (with both on-leash and off-leash areas provided) and offers steep trails for an awesome workout!
Westwood Lake is one of Nanaimo’s most loved parks – it’s fantastic for the whole family. Residents nearby and from afar enjoy its walking and running trails (try the 5.51km trail around the lake) and the main beach area is lifeguard patrolled from June-August. Parents will love the paved parking lot and the facilities on site, and the kids won’t be able to get enough of the playground (and some of us big kids won’t either!).
Nearby schools include Nanaimo Christian, Mountain View Elementary, Fairview Elementary, Georgia Avenue Elementary, Nanaimo District Secondary School, and John Barsby Secondary.
