It's a short 5-minute stroll to Wembley Mall with its Canadian Tire and massive Save-On Foods Store, and the Oceanside Place multiplex facility with its skating rinks. Oceanside Elementary School is an 11-minute walk away, and the nearby #88 Parksville transit line travels to Ballenas Secondary School before connecting to the #91 Intercity Bus for car-free travel between Qualicum Beach and North Nanaimo.
