This is an exotic and extremely historic spot; it was the site of the Hudson Bay Company's first waterwheel and mill in Nanaimo, beginning in the early 1850s. The small but powerful Millstone River (or Millstream as it is also called) makes a dramatic twist around some canyon walls and under a footbridge and down some rapids near the condominium site, then it slows down and passes underneath the highway bridge and into the harbour by Maffeo Sutton Park.
The condos sit on an elbow of land just above Barsby Park, through which the river runs. Residents can enjoy the short walk through this park, and they have the option of extending that walk to the Harbourfront Walkway or in the other direction to Bowen Park.
