Crown Isle is Building Community – One Bench at a Time.

Crown Isle CommunityThe 1st Phase of Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community’s bench program is now complete, with 6 benches installed throughout the community. These benches are designed to provide resting and meeting spaces along popular walking routes throughout the community.

The benches were provided by donation from residents, Crown Isle Resort and builder Benco Ventures, as well as the City of Courtenay, which provided the concrete pads and will maintain the benches.

This joint venture is proving popular already, and Phase II is in the works. Residents can make donations for the next phase through City Hall.

The bench program is just one of many examples of what makes Crown Isle a true community, full of amenities that go far beyond the championship golf course and resort centre.

If you’re ready to be part of the fabulous Comox Valley community, contact Crown Isle today to learn more about building your next homes here!
