Island 22 is a very popular and diverse regional park. It has a multitude of users making it a unique place to visit and explore.
Island 22 is home to the very well known and well used Island 22 Boat Launch. Through out the week the boat launch parking lot will be filled, sometimes to over flowing, with sports fishermen trying their luck with the latest run.
The off leash dog area is very popular and people and their dogs can be found enjoying the space daily. The current off leash dog park was previously the camping area at Island 22 when camping was allowed at the park. Since camping no longer occurs unless it is a sanctioned event, this space has been perfect for dog lovers. It is near the river and has many trees and space for dogs to run around and have fun.
"It really is one of the few areas where they can go park and walk their dog and have a kind of forested area ...For people living in Chilliwack we are serving a lot of residents for sure when it comes to the off-leash area."
Horse riders and walkers please take note of this and use common sense, safety and courtesy on the trails at all times. Dogs MUST be leashed at all times in the horse park.
