Golden Shoe contest returns to Nanaimo-area parks

Regional District of Nanaimo offers prizes for finding the golden shoes

Hikers and walkers in Regional District of Nanaimo parks are encouraged to be on the lookout for golden shoes.

The regional district’s annual Golden Shoe Hunt returns for its 11th year, from now until May 20. Each week a ‘golden’ shoe will be hidden in one of the RDN’s parks or trails. A clue will then be posted on social media and the RDN website. Inside the shoe will be be prizes and a log book where those who find the shoe can enter their names and a message.

All six shoes will remain in their hiding places until after the May long weekend.

The shoes will be hidden in regional and community parks in electoral areas A to H. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the regional district, some of the region’s most historical parks will be featured.

Further prize draws are available for posting pictures to social media with #myrdn and #rdnparks or sending to recparks@rdn.bc.ca.
