COVID-19 UPDATES for Parks and Trails:

Park booking and special events remain cancelled and no new bookings or volunteer events will be taking place until further notice. 

The Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD), in consultation with the medical health officer, has determined that public outdoor spaces will continue to remain accessible for now to Cowichan residents. However, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 our residents are being asked to stay close to home if venturing outdoors, obey all posted signage and maintain physical distance from others.
