Diver Lake is one of Nanaimo’s most central neighbourhoods giving it ideal access to all of the city’s amenities. It is also noted for its serene and well-established residential neighbourhoods. The neighbourhood is named for Diver Lake at its northern end, a lakeside park that offers playing fields, lake access for fishing and excellent walking and biking trails. Beban Park and Country Club Shopping Centre are hubs for the neighbourhood. The Nanaimo Parkway Trail is also easily accessed from this community. Although steeped in tradition, newer subdivisions are also springing up here, thanks to the neighbourhood’s proximity to transportation, shopping, services, parks and schools. Tall trees, mature landscaping and gently winding roads make this a favourite family neighbourhood.
