CRD replacing Saanich playground with new nature play area

Existing Hamsterly Beach structure dismantled, construction expected to conclude in late fall

A new playground is coming to Hamsterly Beach in Elk/Beaver Lake Regional Park.

The Capital Regional District has begun replacing the play structure at the beach with a new nature playground. To prepare for construction, the playground was closed May 13 so crews could begin dismantling the existing structure. The new play area is expected to be completed in the fall.

Beach-users are reminded to be careful around the equipment and construction workers.
