Getting married in one of Nanaimo’s beautiful parks, on the beach or in a tranquil park setting is an ideal way to start a lifetime together. A few basic rules apply when using our public parks for wedding ceremonies.

These celebrations may have impacts on the environment and other parks visitors experience. In an effort to minimize these impacts, wedding parties should obtain a permit by calling 250-755-7517.
