The qathet Regional District is developing a Parks and Trails Strategy to guide the future direction for parks and trails owned and operated by the qRD.
Parks and trails are a vital asset to our community, providing valuable recreation opportunities that support the health and wellness of our citizens. They ensure the public has access to all that nature has to offer while also protecting those resources for future generations.
The final Strategy will present a comprehensive inventory of our current parks and trails; identify key issues, challenges and opportunities; establish goals; and highlight actions that reflect the community’s desires and aspirations for our parks and trails. This Strategy will be used to identify priorities, guide decision-making and operations, and allocate resources over the next ten years.
This project will run until May 2023 when the Parks & Trails Strategy will be finalized. We will conduct two rounds of engagement during this project to determine the community’s vision and values for parks and trails in the region and to provide feedback on the draft plan.

You are invited to attend one of our upcoming open houses and complete an online survey to share your ideas for parks and trails in the qathet region.
