Rainbow Road Recreation Centre Site Master Plan

Mar 15, 2022

Salt Spring Island, BC – The Capital Regional District (CRD) Salt Spring Island Parks and Recreation Commission (PARC) is developing a 20-year master plan for the Rainbow Road Recreation Centre site. This project was identified as a priority in the 2019 Salt Spring Island Parks and Recreation Strategic Plan in response to the community’s desire for increased access to indoor recreation facilities for residents and visitors.

The site master plan will assess current and future capacity needs to identify suitable expansion opportunities. This plan will inform a phased capital planning approach for new facilities and program amenities based on input provided from First Nations, key stakeholders and the public.

The first round of public engagement with key stakeholder and a public survey is now complete and feedback has been compiled to develop three draft Recreation Centre Site Master Plan conceptual designs.  Residents can submit feedback on the draft designs and identify their preferred option online at https://getinvolved.crd.bc.ca/rainbow-road-master-planning.

The draft designs are also on display in the Rainbow Road Recreation Centre lobby.  Public feedback on the draft plans is being gathered until April 4, 2022. Feedback will then be compiled to develop one draft master plan that will be presented to PARC for final consideration.
