New Campbell River parks map released

The map shows the locations of city parks, provides an amenity listing and highlights features

Watch for a new City Parks Map, to be distributed at a variety of locations around Campbell River starting Aug. 1.

The map shows the locations of city parks, provides an amenity listing and highlights features of some of the most popular parks.

The map also contains contact information for the city’s parks office as well as the Sportsplex, where all park and field bookings are done.

“Creating a parks map is a way to build a stronger connection between people and parks in our community,” says Lynn Wark, city parks project supervisor. “We’re also working on providing more interpretive signs in local parks. The Greenways Land Trust and Parks staff have been working on new interpretive signs for the Myrt Thompson trail and the Jubilee section of the Greenways Loop, and we expect to have those in place before the end of the year.”

The City of Campbell River’s Strategic Parks Plan, which was developed after extensive public consultation, supports improving public awareness about community parks.
