Nanaimo at night – heading along the Harbour Front Walkway through Maffeo Sutton Park to Swy-a-lana Lagoon Park.
Maffeo Sutton Park was named for two men – Pete Maffeo was a Nanaimo mayor and ice cream shop owner who was known for his community service, and Joe Sutton was the caretaker of Deverill Square Park.
Created in 1984, Swy-a-Lana Lagoon is a man made lagoon that connects to the ocean during high tides, and utilizes the ebb and flow of the tide to create a habitat for marine life.
Maffeo Sutton and Swy-a-Lana sit on top of an old industrial site that was once a lumber mill.
