Lakeside Gardens

Lakeside Gardens

Whether your preference is for independent living or assisted living, for singles or couples, Lakeside Gardens is a wonderful place to call home.

This inviting 123 suite retirement community, nestled on the shores of Long Lake in central Nanaimo, BC, is a haven of comfort and refined living for seniors. Its natural setting is only a short walk away from the Country Club Centre Mall, medical offices and several local restaurants. It’s the feeling of getting away from it all, with the ease of being close to everything.

Residents of Lakeside Gardens enjoy their independence in spacious and modern one-bedroom suites, with full weekly housekeeping service, relaxed and friendly meals in our scenic dining room overlooking Long Lake and a secure environment provided by our caring, professional staff.

Enjoy everything this vibrant community has to offer. With a games room, lounge, bus trips to shopping, appointments and local points of interest, plus an on-site activities coordinator, there’s no shortage of things to do and see. Or just curl up with a good book and enjoy the view of the lake or mountains.

Our Suites

Lakeside Gardens offers spacious one-bedroom suites with views of our well-maintained gardens, Long Lake or Mount Benson. These stylish and well-equipped suites are ideal for one or two people. There’s ample space in the bedroom for a Queen bed or two singles.

Each residence features a private three-piece bathroom with either a combination tub / shower or walk-in shower and a kitchenette with fridge and microwave. Some suites have balconies or patios, offering access to the beautiful natural setting of Nanaimo. Best of all, weekly housekeeping service ensures worry-free living.


Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served every day in our spectacular dining room with a cozy fireplace overlooking Long Lake. With generous two-hour seating and no assigned tables, there’s no waiting in line or rushing required.


Shopping, medical appointments and other local trips are never a problem, as the Lakeside Gardens’ bus makes excursions four days per week. On Sundays, the bus transports residents to church services and afternoon outings. There are also numerous seasonal and special trips throughout the year.
