On October 16th the Comox Valley Regional District officially celebrated the opening of a new parking facility at Seal Bay Nature Park. Located on Hardy Road, the parking area completes one of the prioritized action items set out within the recently completed Seal Bay Nature Park and Forest Management Plan.

The new parking facility provides 62 visitor parking spots including two universal parking stalls, three formal horse trailer parking stalls, a day use area with an outhouse and picnic tables, and a new 110 meter multi-use trail to connect to the multi-use horse-bike loop.

“As a regular user of Seal Bay Nature Park, I am thrilled to see this project completed and fully funded by proud supporters and our local Community Works Funds,” explains Electoral Area B Director, Arzeena Hamir. “By working together we have made this much needed facility a reality for our community to enjoy.”

The new parking facility has been proudly supported by BC Hydro, Project Watershed, the Backcountry Horseman, and the Comox Valley Roadrunners.
