Free canoe tours at Cumberland Lake Park this spring and summer

Tour explores past, present and emerging stories of Comox Lake Watershed

This spring and summer, Lake Park Society is offering free watershed canoe tours, children’s ‘Park Ranger’ programs, as well as movie and music nights.

You don’t need to be staying at the Cumberland Lake Park Campground to join in the fun. However, the total number of participants will be limited for certain programs.

The all-ages watershed canoe tour takes place every Sunday in 29-foot voyageur canoes that were purchased with the generous support of the Comox Valley Community Foundation. The tour explores past, present and emerging stories of the Comox Lake Watershed and is suitable for anyone comfortable sitting in a large canoe for around 1.5 hours. Participation will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, and online registration is recommended. More information and registration is available at cumberlandlakepark.ca.
