Brechin Hill – Transportation Hub and Beautiful Views

Brechin Hill is one of the older parts of the city and is known for its variety of unique character homes. Many of these houses offer spectacular views of the ocean and Newcastle Island. Though Brechin is an older area of the city, many of these homes have been modernized, while others have maintained their original character look. Brechin Hill is close to Nanaimo’s downtown core, making this quaint area even more appealing to those looking to be within close proximity to local shopping and amenities. Residents of the Brechin area have easy access to Bowen Park where they can enjoy the walking trails, outdoor pool, tennis and beach volleyball courts, and a disc golf course. Bowen Park also offers a community centre as well as two large picnic shelters, making this an ideal location for large events.

Protection Island can also be seen from Brechin hill with ferry access from Downtown Nanaimo. The Dinghy Dock Pub on Protection is a “must visit” for tourists and locals alike. This floating pub looks back at the City of Nanaimo with fantastic southern exposure while you enjoy the stunning views.
