Our wild and natural setting is at the heart of Tofino's recreation and community experience. The District of Tofino encourages residents and visitors to explore and enjoy all of our beautiful outdoor spaces, parks and natural areas.
Village Green Park
Tofino’s Village Green is the main hub in town. The Village Green comprises a large green space, tennis courts, basketball courts, a kids playground, a skate park and a large covered gazebo. This park is located in the center of town, on the corner of Third Street and Campbell Street. In the summer the park is full of families, kids, grandparents and visitors. During the summer months Tofino’s local market sets up in the park on Saturdays, making it even more of a bustling stop over.
