The 707 Community Park on Gabriola Island now includes an additional 9 acres (3.64 hectares) of forested land. The second-largest park in the RDN, 707 Community Park has now grown to an impressive 1,052 acres (425.7 ha) in size. The RDN listened to the community’s interests, and together with the Gabriola Land and Trails Trust who provided a generous donation, the RDN was able to make the parkland purchase. The property officially became part of the park on October 9, 2020. The existing 707 Community Park management plan will provide management direction for the new parkland addition.
