Our Projects Anders & Dorrits Community Park


Regional District of Nanaimo




IWCE does more than just pipe and road building, we build beautiful parks too!!

Anders and Dorrit Olesen originally purchased this land in the early 1980's and was their home for over 30 years.

The land was then gifted to the RDN in 2011 with the Olesen's wishes to preserve the land and offer a community park to the residents of Nanaimo.

IWCE is proud to be a part of this revitalization project! 

Some of the new features include:

  • New concrete stairs & ramp for better accessibility
  • The addition of custom made Gabion Bench seating
  • A new trellis to support the existing grape vine
  • A new and improved patio area
  • Additional parking areas
  • New culvert and headwall for improved drainage

Along with the preservation of the unique and ornamental trees and shrubbery, IWC was able to utilize much of the existing material and incorporate it into the new Gabion Bench seating, keeping a bit of the history of this land preserved for future decades.
