Explore Port Alberni
“Port Alberni is nestled between some of the most outstanding views on Vancouver Island … where community meets nature.”
Port Alberni is one of Vancouver Island’s hidden gems. Often touted as the Hub of the West Coast of Vancouver Island, Port Alberni is centrally located between the majesty of Long Beach (Tofino), the island’s resort and golf area (Oceanside), and the bustling little city of Nanaimo.
What most people looking for their new home on Vancouver Island don’t know is that Port Alberni has all the amenities you need right here in our beautiful valley. Port Alberni boasts a great theatre and art community with both local productions /out of town performers in our two theatres and other local venues. Our local JR A hockey team (the Bull Dogs) play in one of the island’s best multiplexes and our new high school is the envy of other Vancouver Island communities.
A large variety of local services are readily available for both families and retired residents of the Alberni Valley. A list too long to include in this summary. Known as the ‘Community with a Heart’ Port Alberni is rich in longstanding and new annual events and service clubs.
You won’t find another community with more outdoor recreation opportunities in one location on Vancouver Island. The ‘Valley of Trails’ awaits you in Port Alberni. From beginner trails such as the Log Train Trail to rock climbing on Mount Arrowsmith – our forests, rivers, lakes, and inlet offer something for everyone year-round.
Your future home at Cherry Creek Villas backs onto the forested area that is home to Kitsuksis Creek. Just blocks away you will find one of Port Alberni’s newest Ball Parks with a playground where local residents can be found each morning walking their pets before stopping in at Jack’s Store (a long-time local market, gas bar, and gathering place) for their morning coffee.
