Let nature give back by being active

Improving our health and fitness can be easy and free. It can be as simple as going for a walk in your neighbourhood park or as tough as running up Churchill Drive in Mount Douglas Park. The key is to go at your own pace and enjoy nature around you while you are active.

With 170 Saanich parks and over 100 km of trails available, chances are you will find the right fit for your activities. Being active in nature is not an obligation; it is an opportunity. 

 Some ideas to try:

  • Experience fresh air in a Saanich Park
  • Soak up the Vitamin D while on a walk during your lunch hour.
  • Enjoy running, biking or hiking through a park’s designated trails
  • Spot birds in their habitat
  • Grab a Naturehood map and build your own outdoor local adventure
