Good news for those who like to paddle and hike in the Gulf Islands! Brooks Point Regional Park on South Pender Island has expanded its borders and now is contiguous between Brooks Point and Gowlland Point. The fund-raising has been successful to buy small parcels of land to complete the park. This project is a joint effort by several groups, including Habitat Acquisition Trust, the Capital Regional District and the Pender Island Conservancy Association.
