Cast and crew have returned to Oceanside to film Chesapeake Shores, after the series was postponed last year due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The Town of Qualicum Beach said some areas will be closed for filming over the next few days, but signage will be posted and road closures will be communicated. Veterans Way will be closed April 12 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The popular Hallmark Channel series will be filmed at the usual locations of Leigh House (Sally’s Cafe), Town Square (Chesapeake Shores Town Centre), as well as the Community Hall. A large percentage of Chesapeake Shores’ crew is hired locally, according to the town.
Crews will also be filming in Parksville Community Park and along the waterfront walkway from 7 a.m. to dusk on April 15.
Public parking will not be available in the lot near Arbutus Point and along Beachside Drive near the gazebo, according to the city. The Arbutus Point parking lot will also be unavailable after 7 p.m. on April 14.
Public parking will be available in the gravel lot near the sports field and the paved lot west of the curling rink. The large gravel lot behind the curling rink will not be open and a portion will be used by the film crew.
Chesapeake Shores will have traffic controllers on site to assist in case of intermittent traffic delays along Beachside Drive, the city said.
