Filberg Park

Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park

Filberg in the Fall

The Filberg Lodge and nine acres of beautifully landscaped grounds are located on the harbour near the end of Comox Avenue. The estate was originally built for R.J. Filberg in 1929, and following his death in 1977, the Lodge became the property of the Town of Comox (1979). It later became a Municipal Heritage site. The non-profit society, Heritage Filberg Lodge and Park Association, are dedicated to the preservation and stewardship of the Filberg Lodge and Park on behalf of the municipality.

This stately home is located on 9 beautifully landscaped acres a mere two minutes from downtown Comox. Open year-round, the landscaped grounds contain rare and exotic trees, a stream and numerous flowerbeds. Meandering the paths and open meadows are perfect for a stroll, a picnic, or quiet contemplation. Wander through the magnificent gardens, enjoy seasonal al fresco dining on the beautiful waterfront patio at the Filberg Summer Kitchen, take in seasonal events or enjoy the seasonal Hands On Farm with the kids.

The rustic Filberg Lodge is a reflection of local craftsmen's skills in using stone and timber. The original stonework was done by stone mason and head gardener William Meier. The Lodge’s warm interior complements the outside appearance with extensive hand-made woodwork and stonework.

The Totem Pole was created by carver Richard Krentz and donated by Gordon and Ivy Wagner. It was raised on June 19, 1994, and after standing proudly for 23 years, the aging totem has been placed in the ravine to complete its life cycle. 

The Hands On Farm, operated by the Town of Comox during the summer months, houses various farm animals.

The Herb garden, inviting to both the eye and the nose, is located just above the Summer Kitchen. The Garden has been planted and is maintained by the Comox Valley Horticultural Society.

The Summer Kitchen is situated in a restored outbuilding with a covered patio and an excellent view. To reserve the Summer Kitchen, call 250-339-2750.
