Courtenay's network of parks and trails just got a little bigger. The newly opened Rotary Trail connects 5th Street and Cumberland Road, along the E & N Rail Corridor.
The City partnered with the Island Corridor Foundation and the Courtenay Rotary Club to complete the project, also known as a "rail with trail". Courtenay Rotary raised thousands of dollars and contributed volunteer labour to make the trail a reality.

The park equipment includes a rotating net, arch swing, wheelchair accessible merry-go-round, see-saw, diggers and spinners. Due to its location just south of the Courtenay Airpark, the Rotary Skypark has an airplane theme, with an airplane climber, and a gazebo that kids can pretend is their very own air-traffic control tower.
