The 12th Annual Golden Shoe Hunt is underway. Look for the clues to find the golden shoe planted from different Regional District of Nanaimo community or regional parks and trails — RDN photo

Let the hunting begin… for the golden shoe

RDN to post clues online for the 12th Annual Golden Shoe Hunt

The 12th Annual Golden Shoe Hunt is on.

The Regional District of Nanaimo Recreation and Parks event started on the auspicious day of Friday, April 13th. Family and friends can explore the region’s natural treasures during the hunt that encompasses regional and community parks in Electoral Areas A to H.

Each week a “golden” shoe will be hidden in one of the RDN’s regional or community parks or trails.

A clue will then be posted that should lead participants 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.

Take a picture with the shoe and send to goldenshoe@rdn.bc.ca, or post on social media with the hashtags #myrdn and #rdnparks and #goldenshoehunt to be entered into prize draws.

Clues and instructions for the locations of the shoe will be posted weekly to on the RDN page and on the RDN Facebook and Twitter pages. Additional clues and photos may be on Instagram.

Clue #1

This Bridge area can be a bit tricky

As with names we can be very picky.

The shoe will be found on the Regional Trail

But you can visit the Regional Park at the same time without fail.

Walk along and look;

It’ll be found in a little nook.
