Active Comox Valley maps inventory of facilities

Active Comox Valley has mapped an inventory of sports courts, parks, playgrounds, disc golf courses and more.

LOCAL RESIDENTS take in some fresh air during an outdoor workout at the Riverside Fit Park in Courtenay.

Don’t let old man winter get you down!

With support from Rehabilitation in Motion, Active Comox Valley has mapped an inventory of sports courts, parks, playgrounds, disc golf courses and more, to help get you active outdoors for free or little cost.

“The Valley offers so many opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities,” said Robyn Butler, Active Comox Valley co-ordinator. “Our trail maps proved so popular that we wanted to let residents know there are also low cost and free recreation sites in our neighbourhoods, too.”

Many activities throughout the Valley are for all ages and abilities so round up the family, bring along some friends and fit in some playtime. Play a pickup game of basketball or soccer, take the kids or grandkids to the playground for some fresh air and fun, or an old-fashioned game of horseshoes.

And teens can have a blast catching some air at the local BMX or skatepark.

Maps can be picked up at local recreation centres or downloaded at www.activecomoxvalley.ca/activities. A more detailed online map highlighting directions on how to get to each facility will be launched by the end of the year.

Active Comox Valley’s 12 Great Places trail maps are also available — these user-friendly maps showcase trails throughout the region for dog walking, running, biking and wheelchair accessibility.
