Portlock Park Master Plan Public Survey

Salt Spring Island Parks, Arts, Recreation and Culture (SSIPARC) is developing a 20-year site master plan for Portlock Park.

Residents are invited to share their feedback on three draft conceptual designs in a public survey from July 31 – September 29, 2023.

Printed copies of the survey are also available for pickup in the Rainbow Road Recreation Centre lobby, Salt Spring Island Multi Space Gallery and the Salt Spring Island Public Library.

This project was identified as a priority in the 2019 Strategic Plan in response to the community’s desire for increased access to recreation facilities and infrastructure development for additional playing fields on Salt Spring Island.

Take the survey and follow along with the project on our Get Involved page.
