Be careful; saying that the Lantzville area is just another neighbourhood in Nanaimo might be considered an insult to residents who are very proud of their community. The District of Lantzville is located on the northern border of Nanaimo and is much more rural than the city. Meaning, lots here are larger and more spacious than lots in Nanaimo tend to be. Lower Lantzville consists of the area that surrounds the small village center and can provide the best of both worlds for potential home owners. The neighbourhood has a small active commercial center and for those that want more hustle and bustle, Nanaimo’s north end is only a few minutes away. The area also offers some very scenic ocean property along Lantzville Road. Although there are no major parks in the community, Lantzville is extremely close to all the amenities of the north end. Avid golfers will want to visit Winchelsea View Golf Course, an attractive 18 hole course that offers something for all playing abilities. Winchelsea hosts spectacular views of the Strait of Georgia and the Coastal Mountains of the mainland. The community has done an excellent job of developing a number of useful and attractive neighbourhood parks including Copley, Huddlestone and Rotary Parks. These parks provide an opportunity for visitors and residents to enjoy the surroundings of this community. Parks are located in both Upper and Lower Lantzville.
