Sooke bike park gets rec commission nod
Mike Hicks, SEAPARC Commission Chair, is pleased to announce a project to redesign and redevelop the existing SEAPARC bike park.
For the past five months a steering committee consisting of representatives from the Sooke Bike Club, District of Sooke, and SEAPARC have been discussing the future of SEAPARC’s bike park.
On Wednesday April 2, 2014 the Sooke & Electoral Area Parks and Recreation Commission voted to support the recommendation to spend up to $24,000 for the redesign and redevelopment of the existing SEAPARC bike park.
SEAPARC Manager Steve Knoke, stated “these improvements will provide an increased opportunity for children, youth and families to become active on bikes. The park will also be a welcome addition for the provision of SEAPARC programs .”
SEAPARC will explore grants and in-kind donations with partners and volunteers. There is potential to increase the significance of the project by working with the community for support.
Design of the new park will begin immediately with construction anticipated to start this spring.
