Bird & Wildlife Watching. There are many places to watch birds and see wildlife, depending on the season. The Rotary Dyke Road Park (2500 Comox Road) has a bird watching platform with a good view of the Courtenay River Estuary and the many birds there. Point Holmes and Goose Spit are also local favourites. Take a trip down to the Comox Marina, walk the Harbour Authority docks on the SE side of the road and see the many seals basking in the sun. If you walk out to the end of the boardwalk on the breakwater, there are great views of the harbour, the mountains and the glacier and – if you are lucky – you may see the seals hunting and eating along the edge of the breakwater. For a special tret, during much of the year, you can drive down to the Fanny Bay docks and watch the sea lions lounging on the floats off the end of the dock. Historic Parks Filberg Park Visit the 1930s heritage home of pioneers Robert and Florence Filberg, and stroll their nine acres of lovingly landscaped gardens and heritage buildings. Take in the concert series in the garden, the Filberg Festival, or an art show. For the lover of all things vintage, browse the gift shop for vintage linens, silver tea sets, tea cups, etc. Coal Creek Historic Park Completed in 2014, this 40-hectare park encompasses Cumberland’s historic Chinatown and No. 1 Mine Japanese Town sites which were established in the late 1800s. Do a walking tour of what is left of the old Chinatown, visit the Chinese and Japanese cemeteries, and see portions of the historic Wellington

Things To Do In Hiking: There are many beautful walks in the Comox Valley. Some of our favourites are Seal Bay Park (with access from Bates Road or Hardy Road). Rosewall Creek (south on Hwy 19A, 7.3 km past the Fanny Bay Inn), and Nymph Falls (15 minutes from downtown Courtenay on Forbidden Plateau Road.) Pleasant urban walks are Simms Millenium Park (by the 5th Street Bridge) and the Courtenay Riverway Heritage Walk. For the Heritage Walk, start behind Central Builderâ€™s Home Hardware, walk out to the Airpark and back. There is a large eagle nest you can see in the trees across the river from the walk. For a shorter walk, simply drive out to the Airpark and walk around the airpark. Trout Fishing: Comox Lake 3km west of Cumberland Village, Comox Lake Rd. Boat ramp is free Oct-April. Weiner Roast: Enjoy a slice of Canadian Culture, and a favourite anytime of the year. To stay a little protected from the weather Comox lake is an excellent location, or Strathcona Parklands at the base of Mt Washington or on the Puntledge. Golf & Driving Ranges: Mulligans, 250.338.2440. Sunnydale, 250.334.3232. Glacier Greens, 250.339.6515. Comox Golf Club, 250.339.4444. Beaches. There are several good beaches in the Comox Valley. Both the Goose Spit and Kye Bay are spectacular at low tide, with fabulous views of the Salish sea.. For Goose Spit, follow Balmoral SE from the Comox Golf course, and keep going when it becomes Hawkins Road. To get to Kye Bay take Knight Road SE past the Air Terminal and past Glacier Greens Golf Course and turn left onto Kye Bay Road. If you want to go a little further, take a drive North on Hwy 19A to Miracle Beach Provincial Park (turn right onto Miracle Beach Drive about 25 km north of Courtenay). Much closer to town is Kitty Coleman Park. Go about 10 km north of Courtenay on the old Island Highway (19A) and turn right onto Coleman Road. About 1.6km down Coleman Road turn left onto Left Road (yes â€“ turn left onto Left Road!) and follow it to the end. From here you can explore the beach and look across the Salish see to the snow coverd peaks of the coast mountains. Special Adventure If you are especially adventurous, take a trip up to the old Forbidden Plateau Ski Hill. Follow Forbidden Plateau Road west to the top (it turns to gravel about halfway.) This is a good 30 minute drive. Park in the top parking lot just by the old burned down ski lodge, and hike up to the first crest. From here, you have more than a 180 degree view from Quadra Island in the northwest, over the Comox Valley and across to Powell River and down to Bowser in the southeast.

Comox Lake is a favourite summertime recreation area. Cumberland’s 24 hectare Lake Park offers sandy beaches and a swimming float, a concession, a campground, a boat launch and dock, and hiking trails. If fishing is your thing, the fishing on Comox Lake includes Kokanee salmon, Dolly Varden, Char and Rainbow trout. However, for family fun you can’t beat the variety of water sports available at Comox Lake. You can enjoy swimming, kayking, canoeing or the
fastest growing sport in the world – SUPs (stand up paddleboard). This exciting sport is gaining interest everywhere and it gives you a great work out and a unique experience at the same time. If you need equipment, there is plenty of equipment available for rent at the lake from “West Coast” Water Sports. Being on the water is good for the body and the soul!

Enter The Haggis are set to perform LIVE! at Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park.
Since 1995, Enter The Haggis has led the charge among Celtic Folk Rock bands, delighting fans with their memorable performances and inspired songwriting. The Toronto-based band has released eight acclaimed studio albums. Their original songs such as “One Last Drink”, “Down With The Ship” and “Gasoline” have become folk rock anthems, appearing in the films “Goon”, “10mph” and “Addicted to Plastic”. Newer music showcases Enter The Haggis’ signature sound and instrumentation; bagpipes blaze over a powerhouse hard-rock rhythm section as Lewington and Buchanan trade off on lead vocals. After multiple Canadian tours in the late 1990’s, ETH made waves in the US in 2004 with a feature length performance documentary called “Live at Lanigan’s Ball”. Following extensive airing
in more than 80 markets around the US, the band was invited to perform at Celtic and folk festivals across the US, Canada and Europe. Touring tirelessly, they amassed a legion of diehard fans known to cross continents and oceans for shows. Enter The Haggis has worked hard to develop personal relationships with their supporters, (affectionately known as “Haggis Heads”), taking the necessary time to shake hands and chat after performances. It’s thanks to this close connection that the band’s last three albums were entirely financed through crowdfunding platforms that raised over $150,000 US. Tickets on sale now through filberg.com

“A talent like him can awe listeners with his classic Canadiana approach and stunning vocals. “ -The Revue.ca
Aaron B. Thompson
Aaron loves music – always has. Growing up as a minister’s son, church music was a part of life with his mom humming hymns to herself when she was cooking or out in the garden. But there is a song for every season and musical attachments change. He grew up on grunge and hip hop, was inspired by indie rock, and found solace in the comfort of folk. At 13, his dad introduced him to Cat Stevens, and he immediately fell in love. A lot of time was lost addicted to drugs and alcohol with Aaron living like a rock star before he had ever written a song. It was music that helped cleanse his soul. On the path to sobriety
he wrote songs as a means of purging regrets. Songwriting would start as a therapy, and each song is a story about his life or someone in it. But Aaron’s goal isn’t to tell you stories about his life through song. His goal is to reach into your memory with words and melodies so that when you listen to his music, you see your own story so that you both can experience something together. Aaron B Thompson appears at the Flying Canoe West Coast Pub, Friday June 29 starting at 9pm.
