Upper Lantzville is above Highway 19 and is an established community with easy access to North Nanaimo and lower Lantzville. Most of the homes are older with larger lots and some have beautiful ocean views. The rural environment of lower Lantzville extends to upper Lantzville with the only thing dividing the communities is the highway. The Foothills which is a popular hiking and biking area is slated for future development. There are over 730 hectares to be developed of which over 300 have been preserved for parks. Today this region is popular for hiking and biking. There are some spectacular view spots that the current owners have said will continue to be for public use once development starts.
