Golden Shoe Hunt Celebrates RDN's 50th Anniversary

The popular Golden Shoe Hunt is back for its 11th year. This fun, annual event will take place from April 13 - May 20 in regional and community parks in Electoral Areas A to H. This year, to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN), some of our oldest and most historical parks will be featured.

Each week a "golden" shoe will be hidden in one of the RDN's parks or trails. A clue will then be posted on social media and the RDN website to help guide you to the park and the shoe. In the shoe, you will find prizes and a log book where you can enter a message and your name. 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 it to recparks@rdn.bc.ca or post on social media with the hashtags #myrdn and #rdnparks to be entered into our prize draws. Clues and instructions for the locations of the shoe will be posted weekly to www.rdn.bc.ca/recreation and on the RDN Facebook and Twitter pages starting April 13th.
