Public encouraged to complete surveys for park management plans

Aug 18, 2020

Victoria, BC– The Capital Regional District (CRD) is developing a management plan for East Sooke Regional Park and a joint management plan for Roche Cove and Matheson Lake regional parks. Roche Cove and Matheson Lake will be under one management planning process due to the close proximity of these parks to each other.

As part of initial engagement, the public is invited to fill out a survey related to the management plans. These surveys will help CRD Regional Parks gather background information on how members of the public access the park, what changes park users want to see, and what is already working for the park.

The surveys are now open until September 18, 2020. They can be accessed online:

These plans will provide both strategic and specific management direction and will guide environmental conservation, cultural heritage management, visitor use and park development over the next 15-20 years.
