Uplands area borders North Nanaimo, Long Lake, and Departure Bay. Much of the terrain is hilly with outcrops and ravines which makes for interesting viewpoints. Some views incorporate Long Lake, Mount Benson and in some instances even the ocean. The homes are fairly well established and on larger lots and there are also some condominiums in this area. The access to shopping in North Nanaimo, Country Club and even Woodgrove is excellent.
