Crofton Skate Park - Coming 2016!

In consultation with Crofton residents, North Cowichan has selected 1537 Chaplin Street (near the old Timber West building) as the location for a new skate park. 

In early March 2016, community members were invited to provide their comments on the draft design [PDF - 3.5 MB]. The Parks and Recreation Department is now reviewing community input and will soon be looking for bids from construction companies to build the park. Construction is anticipated to begin later in 2016.

Outdoor Fitness Parks

2 locations: Cowichan Sportsplex & Chemainus (located at Chemainus Elementary)
The entire concept behind the offering of this fitness equipment park is simply to make exercising accessible. There are no memberships, passwords, special cards, admission prices, or extra requirements. There are no weights to adjust, no extra training, no special tricks to make things work well. All it takes is showing up, reading the instructions on each of the pieces of equipment and give it a try. If you would like an orientation to the equipment, please call 250-746-3306 and we can set this up for you.
