Parksville & Qualicum Beach Dog Parks
Even your dog can have some fun during your vacation in the Parksville and Qualicum Beach region at a number of off-leash areas.
Qualicum Beach has two great off-leash areas. One across the street from the Qualicum Beach Airport entrance where Rupert Rd. E and Bennett Rd. meet (map). The other one is a trail system behind the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre with access from the parking lot on the back corner (map).
|There is a seasonal dog beach right in The Community Park, which is the main park in Parksville. You can let your dog run there in the summer just not during the Brandt geese migration. There were lots of people there with their dogs. great when the tide is out. I think the restriction is inforce between Nov. and April1? it is well posted anyway. I think Rathtrever may be the same. I haven't tried there.|

|Dogs are such a big part of so many families and there are so many areas for people; surely a small spot where man's best friend and his people can have a little fun isn't too much to ask for?? |

|I find it a point of contrition to the state of disgust that, given the superior amount of dogs in BC and the length and breadth of the beautiful beaches in Parksville & Qualicum, there is no area on any of the beaches for dogs to roam off leash. While trying to find this information stated clearly I came across articles where groups of geriatrics pushed to have the dogs banned and encouraged patrols at all times to fine and enforce this. Given Victoria, Vancouver, Nanaimo, Tofino, and Courtney/Comox all have dog beaches I have nothing but shame for this city, that given its famous beaches, it cannot grant the same courtesy to its residents and visiting dog owners.
Having 3 off leash areas for two towns, though I will admit well kept, means dogs are not manís best friend here.
Avoid if you own pets.

|An off-leash beach area would entice me to come back to Parksville.|

|Of all the beaches here, there should be an area where dogs are welcome. It would be nice to have a place where my dog can fetch a stick from the ocean and cool down too! |

|there should be an off-leash area on one of the beaches as pets are part of visitor/tourists' families. |

|There should be a leash free area on one of the beaches. Most dogs love to frolic in the waves.|
