A new Oceanside Community Track is $10,000 closer to realization thanks to a donation by the Parksville Lions Club.

The fundraising campaign is in the final sprint and within $200,000 of reaching its goal of $1.5 million to rebuild the track and provide additional lifecycle funding for a facility built in the late 70s. 

The committee said, in a media release, it hopes to reach its goal by March 31, 2022 to permit the start of construction in the spring.

“We challenge all service clubs from Nanoose Bay to Bowser to contribute to the upgrade of this athletics track, a health and wellness project which will truly benefit residents of all ages and abilities in our Oceanside community,” reads the release.

Jim Hoffman, Parksville Lions president, Rudy Terpstra, Oceanside Community Track Committee chair and Jane Waite, Oceanside Track & Field president attended the presentation.
