The District of Saanich closed all Rec. Centres including Cedar Hill Arts and Rec Centre as announced on the Saanich website on March 23rd, 2020 to reduce the transmission of Coronavirus. More recently, people walking in the Park will have noticed closure of all access to the building and parking lot including the lower pedestrian bridge. One can still walk past the back of the Rec Centre on the Chip Trail.
Come work your muscles and your mind with Saanich’s Pulling Together Volunteer Program. Volunteers work on high rocky outcrops, creek side forests, wetlands, wildflower meadows and waterways. This hands-on, inclusive, ecological restoration program has been in place since 1999 and is now active in 55 different parks and natural areas. Teams work with a lead steward in each park to remove invasive species, plant native trees and shrubs, improve wildlife habitat, plan and monitor the progress of ecological restoration work and to educate others about parks, invasive species and ecological restoration.
