Share your ideas on access to Mount Doug Park

October 7, 2016

Saanich, BC – Curious about the future of Mount Doug Park and want to have your say on how to improve access? Saanich invites the public to see how community input and the results of our recent access study have helped to shape recommendations for improvement.

During the summer, we asked the community to share thoughts on Mount Doug Park in an effort to better understand how the park is currently used, and to find ways to improve access for drivers, cyclists, pedestrians and transit users. This valuable feedback was compiled and used to draft an initial plan.

What’s Next?

The public is invited to join Saanich Parks staff at an upcoming open house to review the study findings as well as the draft recommendations.

  When: Wednesday, October 12 from 5 – 8 p.m.

  Where: Gordon Head Middle School – 1671 Kenmore Avenue

Feedback opportunities will remain open throughout October. A final report will be submitted to Saanich Council in late fall.

Other Ways to Get Involved:

Can’t make it to the open house? All open house materials will be available online starting October 12, including an online survey which will remain open until October 31.

Quick Facts:

  • At 1.88km(188 hectares), Mount Dough Park contains the largest urban forest on the Saanich Peninsula.
  • 21 kms of trails are available for public use.
