View a Map
McArthur Island Park is a must visit for the active tourist. Golf, soccer, football, baseball, and cricket games can be viewed as you stroll around the perimeter of the park on the paved trail.
Unorganized recreational pursuits include walking, jogging and rollerblading on a 3.1 km paved perimeter walkway. Much of the walkway passes by unique and natural riparian areas and the deck along the south side provides a relaxing rest spot and a place to observe many different birds.
This 2000 square meter concrete paradise holds some of the best features in BC. 4′ quarterpipes line the upper decks for maximum speed and flow, while the plethora of obstacles will keep you busy all day.

A 1200 seat NHL arena, an 800 seat Olympic ice sheet and a curling rink. Recent renovations now offer 9 full size soccer fields, 1 super 8 soccer field and 2 baseball fields from rookie to midget ages.
