On Feb. 11, Lake Cowichan will celebrate its first official holiday dedicated to families – B.C. Family Day.
The official provincial holiday was created to set aside a day for families to spend together.
It is the perfect time to get out and discover some of the incredible activities the area has to offer.
Whether it’s a special evening out at your favourite local bistro, a visit to the Cowichan Lake Sports Arena, or the Kaatza Historical Station Museum, or maybe getting outdoors and enjoying some winter sport – our area is blessed with opportunities to spend quality time together.
With its winter date, and in spite of our “mild” west coast climate, it will mean a chance for Cowichan Lake area families to do some outdoor winter activities that they perhaps don’t get to do on weekends that are normally taken up with hockey.
No need to go far or to spend money: one of the most accessible outdoor activities we have is right here in town on the Trans Canada Trail. Its originating point starts right across from our Tourist Information Bureau at Saywell Park, and you can pick up the trail at various points along the Cowichan River according to the maps providing on the information boards.
Whatever your choose to do, make it a family-oriented day and one that you and your children will remember and look forward to again next year.
