The 9th annual Golden Shoe Hunt starts tomorrow (April 10) promoting many of the beautiful regional and community parks in the area.

The Golden Shoe Hunt is on

Post pictures with gold shoes in regional or community parks to win prizes from RDN

Forget the glass slipper, look out for golden shoes.

The 9th annual Golden Shoe Hunt is an RDN-sponsored treasure hunt spanning 12 regional parks encompassing 2,061 hectares of developed trail, and more than 180 parks in the seven electoral areas.

Each week a “golden” shoe will be hidden in one of the regional district’s regional or community parks or trails. A clue will then be posted that will lead you to the park and the shoe, in which you will find prizes and a log book to enter a message and your name into. All six shoes will remain in their hiding places until after the May long weekend, so there is plenty of time to find them.

According to a news release issued by the RDN, prize draws are also part of the hunt. Simply take a photo with the golden shoe and e-mail it in or post on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtags #goldenshoehunt or

#rdnparks.

Prizes include gift certificates and swim and skate passes.

Clues and instructions for the locations of the shoe will be posted weekly to www.rdn.bc.ca/recreation and on the RDN Facebook and Twitter pages starting April 10. For more information, please contact RDN Recreation and Parks at 250-248-3252.
