Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The CRD is developing a strategic plan for community parks and recreation in the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area (JdFEA).

Let us know how we’re doing and what we should focus on moving forward.

Thank you to everyone who completed the Public Input Survey.

In the JdFEA, we have:

  • 27 community park sites
  • 5.2 kilometres of trails
  • 6 water access sites (3 lake; 3 ocean)
  • 2 seasonal maintenance staff
  • An operating budget of approximately $200,000 per year

We can acquire land for community parks when a developer subdivides property. Under provincial legislation, developers are typically required to dedicate 5% of the land for parkland. In certain situations, developers may provide money instead of parkland so that we can acquire parkland in alternative locations. We may also accept parkland from other government agencies or by donation from private sources who wish to have it retained for park or preservation purposes.

Regional and provincial parks are not within the scope of this plan.

The CRD is also currently planning for its Regional Parks. Please visit https://getinvolved.crd.bc.ca/regional-parks-strategic-plan-update for more details.
