Parks and Trails Master Plan
*** Update: A refreshed Parks and Trails Master Plan is being drafted in the fall of 2019 **
The District of Sooke, recognizing the need to develop an outdoor recreation network that grows alongside the population, initiated a Parks and Trails Master Plan in the spring of 2008. The intent of this project was to analyze the existing outdoor space network in the District of Sooke, and develop a comprehensive strategy to guide future decisions for parks, trails and greenways in the area, identify opportunities and priorities for acquisition and expansion of the parks and trails system, and identify the trends and demands that will determine the future for outdoor recreation in the Sooke area.
A Parks and Trails Master Plan is a strategic document that is system‐wide in scope. It does not examine detailed planning for each park in the system; rather, it provides a vision and direction for the overall District’s parks and trails system.
This plan will assist the District in prioritizing the short and long‐term needs for parks and trails, and will facilitate budget planning, an acquisition strategy, funding applications and park improvement planning over the next 20 years.
The Parks & Trails Master Plan is available using the following links:
