SEAPARC Strategic Planning Study
The Sooke Electoral Area Parks and Recreation Commission (SEAPARC) is undertaking a Strategic Planning study to determine facility requirements for the next 5, 10 and 20 years. The population in the Sooke region is expected to grow significantly in the coming years placing new and greater demands on the recreation facility. The study is examining options for medium-term additions, short-term expansion and improvements plus the acquisition of more land.
An information open house was held Tuesday, May 26th, in which the public was invited to ask questions and learn about SEAPARC's vision for the future. Read more >>

Sooke Bike Park
The Bike Park is now open! The Hike and Bike Connector Trails and Pump Track are also open for use.
The new bike park and trail creates the opportunity for people to be active and foster a connection with nature. The project was made possible through a $75,000 grant from the CRD through the Active Transportation Innovative Infrastructure Funding Program with SEAPARC, the District of Sooke and the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area as participants. SEAPARC committed a further $24,000 to the project. The bike park includes a pump track, a circular hard-dirt surface with hills, and trail access that stretches from the end of Throup Road to SEAPARC.
SEAPARC Trail Improvement
The Juan de Fuca Community Trails Society with SEAPARC and Wittich Environmental Services together installed 44 steps to provide improved pedestrian access to local schools and SEAPARC Leisure Complex. Thank you to all of the volunteers who worked on this project.
