The kids are sure to have a great time at Elsie Miles Park/Dougan Park in beautiful Shawnigan Lake (Electoral Area B). Dougan Park surrounds the Shawnigan Lake Community Centre and offers short walking trails and a well-equipped playground that is completely enclosed with a fence for safety. Elsie Miles Park consists of the open field adjacent to the former Elsie Miles School which is the site of the new park improvements to take place over the next few years. The Shawnigan Pavilion was constructed in 2017 and can be booked through the Shawnigan Community Centre.

Dougan Park was expanded in 2021 with a new park acquisition to the North allowing for a parking area and access to the Trail along the railway and waterfront that links Shawnigan Wharf Park to Masons Beach Park.
