CVRD Committed to Safe, Family Friendly Environment Within Facilities

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) is committed to ensuring that our Comox Valley Sports Centre and Comox Valley Aquatic Centre are accessible, safe and family friendly. 

“Recently we have experienced increased issues during public events at the Sports and Aquatic Centres and need residents to recognize our commitment to ensure that we are providing a safe, accessible place for everyone to enjoy,” states Comox Valley Recreation Commission Chair Melanie McCollum. “As we implement these new procedures we appreciate everyone’s respect and patience.”
