Hello friends and people of Saltair,

If you are reading this, then you have signed on to the Sunny Saltair website. The spirit of Saltair, volunteers and imagination are at work.

I have been asked to provide an update from the parks commission on the wonderful facilities we have in our back yards here in Area G. It is important to note that Saltair is neither Ladysmith nor Chemainus but a bedroom community to both. I like to think of our little community as the Stanley Park of the future metropolis that has become inevitable on the east coast of Vancouver Island. It is a small and scenic very important area that we have been entrusted with. Our Mediterranean climate enables people to enjoy the spectacular natural beauty all year long and park management is ever diligent providing safe trail systems for all to explore. We are rural yet urban, a place for all ages.

The three main parks in our area are: the Stocking Creek Park, Centennial Park and the Diana Princess of Wales Wilderness Park. This year saw improvements to all these parks.

The Stocking Creek Park had the student program add a new stair case to the Huckleberry trail.

The Centennial Park has had upgrades to the washrooms now providing year round availability.

Many years of work came to fruition this year at the Diana-Wilderness Park with the addition of commemorate, informative signage and benches.

I am happy that this forum has been provided, to help sustain the Spirit of Saltair, and to stream information that can be posted.

The Parks commission will endeavor to protect and manage for future generations our green spaces.

Thank you,
Tim Godau
Parks chairperson
