Chase River borders Cedar and South Nanaimo and is becoming a very popular area for new home buyers given the proximity to the Parkway, University and easy access to downtown Nanaimo. The homes are mixed; a lot of older homes on larger lots and newer homes in new subdivisions. Buyers are finding they get great value in this area and therefore it is becoming a popular spot for young families.
