The Cowichan Valley Regional District hasn’t had a recreation plan since the mid-1980’s and the time has come to produce an up-to-date plan.

There are so many recreational opportunities in the Cowichan Valley and this plan identifies key findings connected to the financing and delivery of recreation programs in the area.

General Manager of the Community Services Department at the C.V.R.D., John Elzinga says the public feedback and a facilities use analysis have already been completed.

He says phases three and four involve potential changes to the financing and delivery methods for recreation and program changes.

Elzinga says the regional district has used community plans for many years and he anticipates that the project will be completed by no later than early 2019.

Nine facilities of significance in the C.V.R.D. are listed below:
Shawnigan Lake Community Centre
Kerry Park Recreation Centre
Cowichan Sportsplex
Island Savings Centre
Cowichan Performing Arts Centre
Cowichan Aquatic Centre
Cowichan Lake Sports Arena
Frank Jameson Community Centre
The Fuller Lake Arena.
