Chase River offers peaceful rural living within minutes of the city. Older areas of the community are charming, populated by traditional farmhouses and eclectic post-war homes. Newer homes and communities fit in beautifully with thoughtful, traditional styling and street designs that encourage walking and playing in neighbourhood parks. Chase River offers easy access to the Nanaimo Parkway Trail where cyclists (and ambitious hikers) can wend their way right up to Nanaimo’s north end. The shopping hub of Chase River features two  centres with stores like Country Grocer, Rexall Drugs, Rona and Buckerfields as well as smaller shops, cafes and food outlets. Those who seek a real adventure can wander just a few minutes south to Nanaimo’s Wildplay Elements Park, which features one of the best bungy jumping venues in North America. Wildplay Elements Park also offers a breathtaking zip line, the exhilarating King Swing that hurls people down the canyon and a treetop adventure for people of all ages.
