Oceanside Community Track (@Ballenas)

The Oceanside Community Track Committee is raising funds in order to rebuild the community running Track at Ballenas Secondary School in Parksville, BC.

The existing track was built in the last century with a red cinder base and is approximately 400 m length.  Apart from some improved drainage and re-cindering, no major upgrades have been made since 1977.

The existing facility is past the end of its life cycle.

The track was identified by the Regional District of Nanaimo as needing to be replaced in the 2005 recreational master plan and has been the subject of numerous studies over the years, including a major study in 2009.

The total project cost is estimated to be $1.5 million however after the application of grants and local government contributions, we are asking for a community contribution of $250,000.
