Fields & Parks

North Cowichan is home to over 50 parks with a myriad of features, accessibility and more. To discover our parks for yourself we encourage you to download our

 TRAILS APP  that includes all forestry roads and sanctioned trails for hiking or mountain biking.  Currently, we are featuring Maple Mountain and Mount Tzouhalem and the rest of the forest reserve in future years.

With the app you can...
- geolocate yourself on the mountain
- identify which trails are for hiking, biking or equine
- trail descriptions, elevations and rental

We have updated a new Google Map to show the location of our dog parks (seasonal and year round), playgrounds, and water access (lakes, rivers, and ocean).

Playbox in North Cowichan

We have located our first Playbox in North Cowichan at Kinsmen Beach Park in Chemainus.  The Playbox is a storage container mounted in the park that is filled with sports and fun play equipment. Parents, grandparents or caregivers send an email to us and then they get the codes for the locks and have access to use all of the equipment. To receive the code to gain access to the Playbox email and let us know the age of the kids you will be bringing to the park and we will send you the code.  We would like to thank the Rotary Club of Chemainus for their financial contribution to this project.

We have added 2 new Playbox's

Outdoor Fitness Parks

There are currently 5 locations within the Municipality of North Cowichan that have outdoor fitness parks:

Cowichan Sportsplex (5847 Chesterfield)
School District 79 - Chemainus Elementary and Ecole Mount Prevost
Municipality of North Cowichan - Crofton Museum and Crofton Beach

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 giving it a try.
