Top Cedar Attractions & Amenities
The community of Cedar is not only known for its parks and secluded homes, but also for its rich history. In fact, the area has many ancient relics that connect with the region's past.
The Petroglyph Provincial Park allows visitors to travel back in time—over 1,000 years ago—with its main exhibit: traditional prehistoric First Nations carvings. An interpretive area with information boards helps visitors decipher the petroglyphs, as many of them were created before written language had existed, and each carving has a meaning. Children and history buffs enjoy making ‘rubbings’ of the petroglyphs, by gently placing paper or cloth over the carving and lightly rubbing a crayon or wax to form a reverse impression.
Other highlights in Cedar include two community centers, a farmers market (open every Sunday morning), a skate park, and the shops along Cedar Road. Parks in and around Cedar include the following:
- Nanaimo River Regional Park
- Morden Colliery Historic Provincial Park
- Hermer Provincial Park
- Roberts Memorial Provincial Park
