The Diver Lake area is very central, lying roughly between Northfield Road and Long Lake. Diver Lake itself is the lake seen on your left as you drive from Country Club mall towards North Town Center and Woodgrove. Labieux Rd cuts right through the Diver Lake area.

There are many quiet neighbourhoods here, tucked away on dead end roads, very peaceful and suburban (this is less true as you get closer to Bowen Rd in the east). Lot sizes tend to be between 7,000 and 10,000 square feet. Most of the area is built-out, but a few pockets of new development remain, especially around Wellington Rd.

This area is popular with families because its location is convenient to most things in the city (it's a ten minute drive to downtown or to the bigger malls). It's also close to Beban Park, a sports complex with one of the best two kids' playground in Nanaimo.

Historically, this was the town of Wellington which started around Robert Dunsmuir's coal mines in the 1870s - it was a company town with over a thousand people, including hundreds of Chinese mine workers who settled nearby. The "new" (circa 1900) part of Wellington is across the tracks/highway near Long Lake - I should note that that area is within the real estate board's "Uplands" area designation and listings for that area will appear on my Uplands real estate page.
