The nine-acre Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park is one of the most picturesque places in Comox. This historic property will fill you with a sense of peace and tranquility thanks to its extensive gardens, lush lawns, and towering trees.
As you approach the handsome, 4,000-square-foot Arts and Crafts style Lodge, you can’t help but wonder what it must have been like to live in such a stunning place. Robert Filberg, a successful lumber executive, and his wife, Florence, commissioned this splendid family home beside Comox Bay in the early 1930s and raised their two children on the sprawling property.
When you open the 300-pound front door, hand-adzed from a massive Douglas fir beam, you marvel at the craftsmanship and work that went into making this a warm and inviting home. (It’s said that Robert Filberg extended the length of time it took to build the Lodge to keep men employed during the Depression.) And you imagine the family who lived in this space—you can almost hear the laughter of children running up and down the staircase made of Douglas fir railway ties and branching Pacific yew railings.
Now, the home and grounds are open for all to enjoy. The Park is a sanctuary for wildlife and boasts over 100 tree species. Over the years, countless graduation photo sessions, weddings, celebrations of life, and other special occasions have taken place here.
Filberg Park is beautiful in every season, but it really comes alive in the summer, with kids’ day camps, a small hands-on farm, the renowned Filberg Festival, and a seasonal patio restaurant. Any day is a great place to visit! Bring your kids, family, or friends, and make some cherished memories of your own.
