One of the best things about moving to Sooke is the excellent system of parks and trails our district enjoys. From Ed MacGregor Park and the waterfront boardwalk to the Galloping Goose Trail, there’s always something to do in some beautiful park in Sooke.
Today when I went to grab the best cappuccino on the continent at Sooke’s renowned Stick in the Mud Cafe, I noticed the above brightly coloured flyer. Upon flipping it over, I read that the District of Sooke is holding a public open house to review a draft of the Parks and Trails Master Plan. Residents are invited to share their ideas and priorities for the future of parks and trails in Sooke.
The open house runs Wednesday, November 26th, 2008 from 4:00 until 8:00 in the foyer of the SEAPARC Arena, Philips Road. Light refreshments will be provided.
I encourage all those who love our town and the outdoor recreation opportunities it offers to come out and have your say in the future planning for those amenities. I’m planning on attending, hope to see you there!
On our weekly MLS® tour yesterday, we were invited to Sooke’s popular master-planned community, Sunriver Estates to view their first multi-family development, the Pointe. The Pointe is a 4-unit-per-building townhouse complex, with 32 units sitting on 7 acres on a peninsula which juts out from De Mamiel Drive and is surrounded by the steep banks of De Mamiel Creek. The setting is stunning, and the townhomes are certainly impressive. The show suite we went through of course had all the bells and whistles upgrades – luxurious soaker tubs, hardwood floors, quartz countertops. The units are all one-level (although some require a climb of stairs from the front door) and range in size from about 1500 to nearly 1700 square feet, and feature open floor plans with lots of windows to enjoy the lush rainforest outside your door.
Prices start at $359,900 including GST. Sunriver knows their market and has done a spectacular job of their first multi-unit development. The show suite opens to the public this weekend, June 21 and 22
