Uplands is a thriving neighbourhood that offers something for everyone; shopping malls, Oliver Woods Community Centre, Linley Valley protected park, Long Lake beach and array of restaurants and pubs. Beginning at the higher part of Departure Bay Rd (behind Country Club Centre), and curves its way behind North Town Centre Mall running parallel to the Island Hwy, then continues past North Town Centre.

This area developed during the 1970-90’s with mostly upper-middle class professionals with families. Properties In Uplands often perch on rocky hillsides, or they occupy the dark spaces at the bottoms of small ravines. The uneven topography makes for some large lot sizes, and many of the homes in Uplands are Nanaimo’s best view homes, overlooking Long Lake, Mount Benson, or even the ocean.
