The town of Comox is all about lifestyle. The location is superb nestled on the shore of the Comox Bay and the views of the nearby ocean and mountains are magnificent. The main street remains quaint and it provides access to small retail shops and essential services. How about the 9- hole golf course that is just off of the main street and home to a number of deer? Marina Park is located across the street and down the hill. It is home to many different events throughout the year and right beside the Comox Harbour.
The Comox Mall is currently being renovated and expanded to better meet the needs of a growing population. This area continues to be sought after by many people who yearn for a better quality of life than the one that they currently have within the hustle and bustle of larger cities and suburbs. Just about everything is located within a short walk or a 10-minute drive from the downtown area. The City of Courtenay is connected on the east side of the Courtenay river by Comox Avenue, Back Road and the Guthrie Road – Lerwick Road connector.
Comox offers many different family friendly neighbourhoods. The larger ones like Foxxwood Heights, Lancaster Heights, and Beckton Estates are complemented by many small ones scattered throughout the town boundary. They offer a wide variety of housing options in many different price ranges and in the styles of homes offered. Also prevalent are the numerous parks such as Highland Park, the Northeast Woods, Brooklyn Creek Park, Filberg Park, Mack Laing Nature Park, Condor Park and others. Nature trails and walking trails are numerous and varied. The Comox Recreation Centre offers a variety of programs to keep you fit and Quality Foods and Independent Grocer offer numerous food choices to keep you healthy. While the pace of life has picked up a bit in the past 5 years, locals continue to live on “Island Time”. When you visit slow down and join us in an unrushed day.
The local harbour offers a boardwalk to enjoy the ocean and local vistas and to just sit and take in the refreshing Pacific air. Nearby the Comox Spit offers tremendous views of the Georgia Strait to the South towards Vancouver and of the nearby Coastal and Vancouver Island mountain ranges. Enjoy and evening on the beach and observe the ocean life doing the same thing. If you are more adventurous the Mount Washington ski hill is a short 30-minute drive to both winter and summer activities. Within the Courtenay-Comox confines there are numerous social, cultural and recreational opportunities to choose from and to keep you going.
