Seal Bay Nature Park Signage

This public engagement has ended. Thank you to everyone who completed the survey. We received 214 responses. 

Many of your responses included suggested improvements which we are working to incorporate within the signage moving forward. Here are a few changes that will be coming:

  • Increased icon sizes
  • Increased arrow sizes
  • Running loop signage within future parks where appropriate
  • Adjusting design of the smaller feature signs

Thank you for continuing to enjoy our regional parks. If you have any further feedback please contact us communityservices@comoxvalleyrd.ca



Have you noticed the new signs at Seal Bay Nature Park? In June 2020, K’ómoks First Nation (KFN) and the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) revealed a new design for park signage in Seal Bay Nature Park, Xwee Xwhya Luq (pronounced Zway Why Luck).

The goal of the new directional park signage is to increase trail safety within the park and incorporate the Ayajuthem language. Ayajuthem is a Coast Salish language shared between the peoples of K’ómoks, Tla'Amin, Homalco and Klahoose. The new sign names included a variety of natural park elements, animals and cultural references.

We’re Checking In!

The CVRD will be using the design of these signs as a template for flagship parks (e.g. Mount. Geoffrey Nature Park), so we want to get it right, and ensure that park users are able to interpret, read and understand the signs.

The CVRD is seeking feedback on the following elements of the design:

  • Size and legibility of the signs.
  • Size and clarity of icons.
  • Visibility and clarity of trails and trail use on maps.
  • Clarity of park rules.

We are not seeking feedback on:

  • The incorporation of the Ayajuthem language or cultural elements incorporated within the signage.

The survey is now closed. Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate. We are reviewing the results, comments and suggestions. We will provide a report and summary of the results during summer 2021.
