  • I'm not sure where to make these comments regarding future recreation plans for this region. Hopefully this is the right place. I am a senior living in Parksville and I believe there is a need for a swimming pool in Parksville. I believe there are a lot of seniors who will not go to Qualicum to participate in swimming or water aerobics but who would attend if it was in Parksville. I have gone to Ravensong for water aerobics but it was so crowded I did not go back. I've been told this is an ongoing problem. Many seniors would benefit from an aquatic fitness program or just the exercise and sociability of swimming. Is there is a plan for this to happen in the foreseeable future in Parksville? Thanks for your attention.

    This is exactly the right place for your question and thank you for asking it.

    The comment regarding the benefit of constructing and operating another aquatic facility within District 69 (e.g. Parksville) while continuing to operate Ravensong Aquatic Centre has been made before for reasons identical to those that you have provided.

    Pages 34 - 38 of the draft master plan provides options in meeting the demand for aquatics in the Oceanside area which includes a new or replacement aquatic facility.

    The recommendation currently in the master plan to meet the needs of the aquatics demand does not favour meeting this demand by building and operating two pools or replacing Ravensong with a new pool but rather expanding Ravensong itself. 

    The current population level (46,665) and demand indicates that a second indoor aquatics facility is not likely warranted until the population of the area exceeds 60,000 - 70,000.    

    Again thank you for your question and I hope you are able to attend one of the open houses next week and/or continue to participate in the project here online.
