The Parksville and District Community Society was established to preserve the park area near the beach at Parksville for public use. The Society purchased the land there and developed a community park, which was later acquired by the City of Parksville.
The material in the fonds remained in the custody of Jame E. Kingsley, a founding member, when the Community Society disbanded. J. E. Kingsley transferred the fonds to the Parksville & District Historical Society in 1993.
