MESSAGE FROM

Mayor Schmunk I hope everyone had an opportunity to enjoy their summer. It is certainly a busy time for most of us. As we move into fall and back into a more regular routine, it’s a great time to get back into an active routine. While there are lots of healthy living opportunities in this brochure, we are also fortunate to have some excellent recreational opportunities in our community, both built and natural. I was very pleased to officially open the Tuff City Bike Park, along with MLA Scott Fraser and key volunteer Alex Cutler. It was impressive to see the amount of volunteer effort and fundraising that went into this project. Congratulations to all involved, it

certainly is a great asset to our community. Thank you to the Tofino Recreation Commission and all of the volunteers for hosting another successful Canada Day. It was good to see so many locals and visitors on our Village Green and on the waterfront watching the fireworks. We could see the result of last year’s Canada Day fundraising efforts in the restoration of the well used Flying Fox. Thank you! Council recently adopted the Cultural Scan – Picturing Tofino. This project was a goal of the Arts, Culture and Heritage Committee, and will form the basis of the upcoming Arts and Culture Master Plan and the Heritage Plan. There is a lot of good work being done on the committee level. I and Council look forward to working with the Tofino Recreation Commission and staff on their Parks and Recreation Master Plan Review coming up this fall. This document provides important direction for our community as it moves forward with Parks and Recreation Initiatives. There will be lots of opportunity for public input; I encourage everyone to participate and help us with guiding parks and recreation initiatives over the future.

SALLY MOLE

THANK YOU Brendan and Willie!

SALLY MOLE DIRECTOR OF PARKS & RECREATION

A

s the craziness of summer winds down, I’m sure I’m not the only one looking forward to school being back in! It’s nice to have everyone back on a regular schedule and in one place again. Hopefully we’ll have some nice fall weather and be able to stretch our outdoor time out a bit longer. Laura and April have done a great job scheduling lots of opportunities for some active living this fall. Pick up a class and put it on YOUR family’s schedule!

I write this at a very sad time for our community, and beyond with the passing of our friend and frequent volunteer Jamie Collins. It’s a struggle to find words to adequately express the emotion that has racked our hometown. Once again, I am amazed and proud at how our community pulls together at times of tragedy. Let’s take care of each other...

Sally

We send a big shout out to Stephanie Dean and Kyla Emery who did an awesome job with our summer camps this year. A great couple of girls, and together, a great team. It was great to have their fresh energy and ideas with us this summer. We welcome Laura back to our daycare ready for a busy fall. I don’t know how we manage without her, but the amazing Fiona always seems to find a way. She and her team have had a packed summer and I’m sure she is looking forward to the fall months. Well done daycare staff! Now breathe!

FALL 2012

This summer local kids had the opportunity to play a game of street hockey with NHL superstars Brendan Morrison and Willie Mitchell! This has become an annual tradition with Brendan and his family and this year we were lucky to have Willie join in. The game took place shortly before the 2012 Saltwater Classic fishing derby kicked off. The Saltwater Classic Fishing Derby is hosted by Brendan Morrison and raises money for a number of local organizations including the Tofino Salmon Enhancement Society, Tofino Parks and Recreation, The Wickaninnish Community School PAC Healthy Food Program and the West Coast Multiplex Society.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION Did You Know?? You can register for programs at the District Office. The District Office is open from 9am – 4pm Monday to Friday. We hope this makes it convenient for you to register in advance of our programs. Registering in advance allows us time to consider implementing an extra class if the course is full, to ensure adequate materials and supplies are available, and to implement staff/instructor changes should we need to expand the program.

Sorry, the Course is Full Some classes fill quickly. If the class you want is full, please ask to be placed on the waitlist. You will be contacted if space becomes available or if we add additional classes.

Changed your plans? A full credit or refund will be issued if we receive withdrawal information prior to the course start date unless specified otherwise during registration. There is a form available at the District Office to apply for credits/refunds. It is extremely helpful if you have a copy of your receipt to attach to your application. What?! You had to cancel it? Sometimes excellent courses with excellent instructors are cancelled if everyone waits until the last minute to register (think “Tofino time”). Register early to avoid disappointment for yourself and others. New Program Idea? Tofino Parks and Recreation is always looking for new programs. If you have a skill you’d like to share please give us a call or stop by the District Office. We always have a need for instructors, coaches and volunteers!

Program Minimum Ages For the enjoyment of all participants, children must be the correct age prior to the first class of the program. Exceptions may apply for program-specific reasons.

Accessibility We believe that recreation programs should be accessible to all children in our

To register for a program, drop in to the Tofino Municipal Hall.

community regardless of ability to pay. If you find it difficult to participate in any program because of financial limitations, please speak with one of our staff.

Advanced Payment In order to secure your spot in a program, payments for the program must be received prior to the program commencing. By registering and paying for a program in advance, the instructor is able to prepare for the correct number of participants enrolled. If you call and register for a program, your spot is not secured until you come into the district and pay for the class/program. By paying in advance for your program it alleviates the Parks and Recreation Staff from having to phone and chase up payments during the program’s session. It also ensures instructors receive their payments in a timely fashion. If you are unable to make the full program payment prior to the start of the program, please let one of the Parks and Recreation staff know and alternative arrangements may be made.

Pro-Rating Policy By registering and paying for a program, you are committing to attending the full duration of the program. Refunds will not be granted for days missed, unless this is agreed upon in advance with the instructor. Pro-rating for classes must be arranged through the teacher instructing the course. *New Billing Policy All program participants should register and pay in advance for Tofino Parks and Recreation programs. If participants begin attending a program without registering, they will be added to an accounts receivable billing system with our Finance Department, and issued a formal invoice for each program they attend. If program fees are a participation barrier for you or your family, please contact the Parks and Recreation department to make alternate arrangements prior to the start date of the program.

This issue of our Active Living Guide contains program and event information for September-December 2012. 6

It was a fantastic Summer with Tofino Parks & Recreation!

Summer 2012 was filled with excitement! We started off the summer with our Wild Water Camp. That week consisted of surfing, water conservation games, fishing and a visit to the aquarium. To end the Wild Water Camp we took a trip to Paradise Mini Golf & Bumper boats where the kids had a blast soaking the camp leaders! The kids that participated in Board Sports Camp had a great time improving their skills and trying out new sports. It was a week packed with skateboarding, stand up paddle boarding, skim boarding, sand boarding and surfing. Then we finished off the week with an awesome day of wakeboarding and knee boarding at Sproat Lake! Our exciting Adventure Camp was definitely filled with adventure. We started off by exploring the Big Tree Trail on Meares Island. The week also consisted

TOFINO’S COMMUNITY LIVING GUIDE

of golfing, fort building, the bike park & a bike rodeo as well as a scavenger hunt. Our last big adventure of the week was a trip to Nanaimo Wild Play Monkido Course where the kids completed obstacles in the trees. We also camped at Arrowvale Campground and rode donkeys on our farm tour. Throughout the summer we also teamed up with the Raincoast Education Society to entertain the kids with the Green Olympics, Where the Wild Things Are and Chefs of the Northwest Camps. There were also a handful of other camps that included yoga, gymnastics, soccer, art and a variety of other exciting activities. We hope everyone had a fun and exciting summer because we sure did! Now is your chance to get involved and be part of the fun with Tofino Parks & Recreation all year!

Parks Facilities AND

Lighthouse Trail We going to be back at work on the trail this fall, creating some new routes that are a little easier to navigate, with less steep grades. The Lighthouse Trail Committee will be holding a workbee September 16 with a barbeque to follow! Everyone is welcome to come out and help, and join us for some social time after. Bring gloves, a rake or shovel and lots of energy! We have received funding to restore the access to the trail from Petersen Drive. This grant of just over $14,000 from TD Canada will see us narrowing the access and doing some restoration work to make the access less “road like” and more stroller/pedestrian friendly. Work on this project will be starting soon.

QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR PARKS?

250.725.3229

The trail currently ends close to the boundary of District Lot 120, which is owned by the province. We have requested permission to cross this Lot, which is critical to creating the connection to Middle Beach and beyond. The province has indicated it will support this application, on the condition we can show support from Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations. We have requested this support some time ago, and hope to hear positive news in the near future.

MUP Connector Trail The contract is in the process of being awarded and we are excited to start work on this project! The MUP Connector Trail will run from the Community Hall to Industrial Way, approximately 1200 metres. It’ll be a great alternative route to town, and opens up possibilities of other trail networks in the area. This project is funded by the provincial Community Recreation grant and the Resort Municipality program.

Bert Demeria Memorial Park The grass is growing and the field will be fed and reseeded this fall. We have received $5000 from our friends at Tree Canada for some landscaping on the steep section, and so far we have four memorial benches requested for this site. This will be a great place to sit and watch the harbour on a sunny day!

Tuff City Bike Park

Parks and Rec Master Plan

is open!!! We held our official opening in what seemed to be the wettest day of the year, on June 16, with Mayor Schmunk and MLA Scott Fraser cutting the ribbon with Alex Cutler. We’ve had great feedback from people and are stoked to see how well used it’s been. And yes, Sarah and Marnie, we’ve seen you sitting on your fold up chairs and we’re working on getting some permanent seating in! Also in the works is some access to water, we know biking can be thirsty work!

The Tofino Recreation Commission rolled up its sleeves and took the first steps in this big process, updating some obvious changes to the document, and throwing out ideas for future initiatives and improvements. Letters have been sent out to stakeholders and the Commission will review theses comments and make changes to finalize a first draft. This is where you come in. We need to hear from our community on things that are going well, not so well, or not happening but should be. Ideas, suggestions and constructive criticism welcome. Watch for news about our open house coming this fall.

Village Green Flying Fox Thanks to a nice donation from the Tofino Recreation Commission, the Flying Fox has been resurrected by the talented Boulton Brothers. We’re pretty happy with the finished product, and love seeing all the kids fighting over it!
