 A message from the Executive Director, Leanna Kemp

March, the arrival of Spring, one of our favorite seasons!  The days become longer, the temperature milder, the flowers begin to bloom and the birds start singing.  Spring brings a renewed energy and a desire to head outside and do something fun!  Chilliwack is home to many outdoors activities and recreational venues!  Check out some of what beautiful Chilliwack has to offer as well as what some of our Recreation businesses are offering;

  • Take a walk on the Vedder Rotary Trail
  • Bike along the new Cycle path from Sardis to Chilliwack
  • Work on your Golf Swing at Chilliwack Golf Club, Cultus Lake Golf Club or Meadowlands!
  • Cheer your favorite local hockey players, The Chilliwack Chiefs, as they battle Langley Rivermen in Round 1 of the playoffs
  • Join a beginner run clinic through Garrison Running Co. or through Club XO

Whatever your suits your preference, there is something to do for everyone!
