College Heights

This is a development of large homes on a ridge overlooking Nanaimo, the Georgia Strait, and the mountains on the mainland. College Heights is just across the Nanaimo Parkway from VIU, Vancouver Island University and a six minute drive from downtown. Pedestrians and bicyclists will get complimented on their calves. And anyone who likes mornings will feel right at home in College Heights, where the Georgia Straight sunrises are literally some of the finest on Vancouver Island. Buying a home in College Heights, you’ll find you can get a little more for your money than if you stayed closer to town. Buttertubs Marsh, Colliery Dams, Morrell Sanctuary, Westwood Lake, and Westwood Ridge are close by and a few of Nanaimo’s favourite destinations for outdoor activities.
