The District of Sooke (British Columbia, Canada) is receiving CA$353,449 from the Province’s Community Economic Recovery Program Grant to help improve the Sooke Potholes.

According to a report, the project will involve the construction of two accessible restrooms, widening staircase access to the beach, installing wayfinding signage and visitor information kiosk, and parking improvements.

The construction will begin in the fall and will be completed by May’s long weekend in 2023.

Sooke is famous for its accessibility to nature, and its Potholes are a recognizable nature landmark that is a favorite destination for both visitors and locals.

The lower lot, district property, offers access to the freshwater beach and trail system, connecting to the Sooke Potholes Regional Park, managed by the Capital Regional District.

On top of the Potholes, the Spring Salmon Place (KWL-UCHUN) Campground is run by T’Sou-ke First Nation. It is open seasonally throughout the summer between mid-May to mid-September.

Alongside the Sooke River and Potholes is the Galloping Goose Trail—providing breathtaking scenery and easy biking trails on the former rail line.

The Sooke Potholes Enhancement project is just one of more than 50 new tourism initiatives across B.C., receiving a total of CA $21.3 million to fund shovel-ready infrastructure projects through B.C.’s Community Economic Recovery Infrastructure Program’s (CERIP) Destination Development funding stream.
