13th Annual Golden Shoe Hunt

13th Annual Golden Shoe Hunt

Join us again to find the Golden Shoe. Bring your family and friends to explore our natural treasures and take part in the 13th annual Golden Shoe Hunt, encompassing regional and community parks in electoral areas A to H.

Each week a "golden" shoe will be hidden in one of the Regional District's Regional or Community parks or trails. A clue will then be posted that should lead you to the park and the shoe, in which you will find prizes and a log book to enter a message and your name into. All six shoes will remain in their hiding places until after the May long weekend, so there is plenty of time to find them.

Take a picture with the shoe and send to goldenshoe@rdn.bc.ca or post on social media with the hashtags #myrdn and #rdnparks and #goldenshoehunt to be entered into our prize draws.

Clues and instructions for the locations of the shoe will be posted weekly to this page and on the RDN Facebook and Twitter pages starting April 12th. Additional Clues and photos may be on Instagram.

Clue #1
"Comb" this Regional Park to find
the giant arbutus the shoe is behind.
Clue #2
This week's Golden Shoe is a little further away:
Make it a day
with a lunch to carry
when you look for the shoe
by boarding a ferry.
This Regional Park
can be used to camp
to play at all day
or use the boat ramp.
To find the shoe you need to stroll
toward the ocean
but beware of the troll.
Clue #3
The golf course nearby has “links” and so is this trail
To get you where you want to go, no fail.
Take a walk or grab your bike
This shoe is hidden near a bridge you will like.
Clue #4
This regional trail can be used to hike or bike
or view the hatchery if you like.
Look for the shoe where we’ve hidden it before,
under the steps near the bridge, it won’t be a chore.
Clue #5
The views of Nanaimo from the top of this trail are the best
And the climb can put your fitness to the test.
The shoe is at the start
So you only do a little part.
Turn right at the pink “left” and you’ll find the shoe in the bridge cleft.
Continue on up after if you want, but don’t forget to prepare for your jaunt!
