Rainbow Road Recreation Centre Master Plan

The Capital Regional District (CRD) Salt Spring Island Parks and Recreation Commission (PARC) is excited to announce that we have developed three draft conceptual designs for the Rainbow Road Recreation Centre Site Master Plan. These layouts were developed by compiling the feedback from the first round of public engagement with key stakeholders and the public survey.

Information about the project as well as a survey where you can provide feedback on the three draft conceptual designs can be found here. The survey will be open to the public until April 4, 2022 after which we will compile the results into one draft design and publish the information in the link provided above. Please consider subscribing to the project to receive updates and follow along the process.
