Things to Do

The park is adjacent to the historic site of Leechtown, a mid-19th century gold mining town, and is the site of former railway logging operations. Kapoor is dedicated by the Kapoor family in memory of "pioneer lumberman and visionary" Kapoor Singh Siddoo (1885-1964).

Today, no standing structures remain, although relic mining and logging equipment lies throughout the area. That and Kapoor's second growth forest are a testament to the industry that once flourished in these woods. 

Kapoor is the northwest terminus of the Galloping Goose Regional Trail. It is a great ending point for a trip by bicycle or on foot. Travel to it from Sooke Potholes Regional Park.


Bike Rack Information Kiosk Toilet

The park offers a bike rack, information kiosk and toilets at the rest area.
