District 69 (Oceanside) Recreation Services Update

The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) is beginning work on two important recreation projects for the District 69 (Oceanside) area.

A review of the District 69 Recreation Services Master Plan is beginning this fall. The review will look at recreation services currently being provided by the RDN to determine if District 69 (Oceanside) community needs are being met. This will include engaging the community and users of RDN-owned recreation facilities and programs. More information will be provided through community engagement beginning this fall.

As part of this process, the public will be asked for feedback on an expansion of the Ravensong Aquatic Centre in Qualicum Beach. The RDN Board has directed staff to develop a timeline, budget and process for potential expansion of the facility. This will include stakeholder input, public consultation, facility amenity refinements and District 69 Recreation Commission review. The Recreation Commission and RDN Board have asked that feedback regarding the expansion of the aquatic facility be completed early in the Recreation Services Master Plan process.

Updates on these two projects will posted to our website at www.rdn.bc.ca.
