12th Annual Golden Shoe Hunt

Starting April 13th

Join us again to find the Golden Shoe. Bring your family and friends to explore our natural treasures and take part in the 12th 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 13th. Additional Clues and photos may be on Instagram.
