A new place for kids to play in Fanny Bay, where slides, swings and climbing walls abound.
The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) celebrated the official opening of the new Fanny Bay community playground this week. Locals were invited to come see the new playground facility and celebrate the opening.
“The Fanny Bay community playground is truly a celebration of a community working together to develop a beautiful new space to enjoy,” explains CVRD Electoral Area A Director Daniel Arbour.
He continues, “In the rural areas of the Comox Valley, recreation amenities like this one ensure that residents can spend quality time with friends, neighbours, and family without having to travel a great distance.”
Back in 2019, local Fanny Bay residents brought forward an idea for a new playground. With the support of the Fanny Bay Community Association, local volunteers, and the CVRD, this vision became a reality.
According to the CVRD, funding for this project was provided by the Electoral Area ‘Community Works Funds’.
More new playgrounds planned for the valley
In Courtenay, new ‘bright and colourful’ playgrounds are to be installed at Maple Park and Hobson Park, both with equipment suited toward kids between the ages of two and five. More details here.
