Parks & Trails
Skelton Park, located at 8535 Young Road, was donated to the Township of Chilliwack in 1966 by the Skelton family, in memory of Norman Alfred Skelton. The original park included a large evergreen tree surrounded by a water pond. Through the years the existing park needed more repairs and in June of 2013, an upgrade of the greenspace was completed.
Beautiful landscaping frames a water fountain that includes a sculpted retaining wall made even more resplendent with the name of the park engraved upon it. Visitors to the park will find that designers maximized the linear shape of the land and came up with a gorgeous, wheelchair-friendly layout which includes new paths, plenty of space and benches for anyone to sit and take in the beauty of the setting.
Enjoyed by the public, but in particular the residents of the surrounding retirement community, Skelton Park has become one of the more popular jewels of the City of Chilliwack’s parkland facilities.
The City of Chilliwack has partnered with a number of local organizations and non-profit groups to develop an Adopt-a-Park and Adopt-a-Trail program. Groups volunteer their time to cleanup parks and trails in Chilliwack, to keep the community looking its best!
Created as a supporting document to Chilliwack's Official Community Plan (OCP) the Greenspace Plan and supplementary Trail Network Plan sets out the City's goals and visions for developing new parks and trails over the coming decades.
The City of Chilliwack has over 100 parks and natural areas which together make up over 400 hectares of green space.
