Below Info from Wickpedia
Comox is a town of about 15,000 people on the southern coast of the Comox Peninsula in the Georgia Strait on the eastern coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The warm dry summers, mild winters, fertile soil and abundant sea life attracted First Nations thousands of years ago, who called the area kw'umuxws (Kwak'wala, the adopted language of the K'omoks, for plentiful). When the area was opened for settlement in the mid-19th century, it quickly attracted farmers, a lumber industry and a fishing industry. For over fifty years, the village remained isolated from the outside world other than by ship until roads and a railway were built into the area during the First World War. The installation of an air force base near the village during the Second World War brought new prosperity to the area, and in recent years, Comox has become a popular tourist attraction due to its good fishing, local wildlife, year-round golf and proximity to the Mount Washington ski area, the Forbidden Plateau, and Strathcona Provincial Park. The town is also home to a Royal Canadian Air Force base CFB Comox, an airport for military and commercial airline use and the Sea Cadet training facility HMCS Quadra. The mild climate has attracted many retirees to the area in the 21st century, resulting in a high rate of growth and a sharp increase in the median age of residents.
Comox town is in the Comox Valley, along with several other communities, including Courtenay, Cumberland, and the unincorporated hamlets of Royston, Union Bay, Fanny Bay, Black Creek and Merville. The nearby Comox Glacier is visible from many parts of the town and is the area's signature landmark.
科莫克斯是位于不列颠哥伦比亚省温哥华岛东海岸乔治亚海峡科莫克斯半岛南部海岸的一个约15,000人的小镇。温暖干燥的夏季，温和的冬季，肥沃的土壤和丰富的海洋生物吸引了成千上万年前的原住民。19世纪中期开放定居，迅速吸引了农民，木材工业和渔业。五十多年来，该村一直与外界隔绝，唯一交通是乘船，直到第一次世界大战期间道路和铁路建成该地区。在第二次世界大战期间在村庄附近安装了一个空军基地，为该地区带来了新的繁荣，近年来，由于捕鱼业，当地野生动植物，全年高尔夫球场，科莫克斯已成为一个受欢迎的旅游景点。该镇还拥有加拿大皇家空军基地CFB Comox，一个军事和商业航空公司使用的机场以及Sea Cadet训练设施HMCS Quadra。在21世纪，温和的气候吸引了许多退休人员到该地区，导致高增长率和居民中位数年龄的急剧增加。

Filberg Park 菲尔北格公园
Goose Spit 鹅口水湾
Filberg 公园位于靠近Comox Avenue尽头的港口。该庄园最初是为R.J.建造的。菲尔伯格于1929年，并于1977年去世后成为公共设施。菲尔伯格遗产旅馆和公园协会（一个非营利性协会）代表市政府管理和开发该物业。
乡村风格的Filberg Lodge酒店反映了当地工匠使用石材和木材的技巧。最初的石雕是由石匠和园丁William Meier完成的。 Lodge酒店温馨的室内装饰与外观相得益彰，配有大量手工制作的木制品和石雕。
图腾柱由Richard Krenz创建，由Gordon和Ivy Wagner捐赠。图腾柱的特点是科莫克斯原住民的四个主要家族的徽章。
夏季期间由Comox镇经营的Hands on Farm农场饲养着各种农场动物。
Goose Spit公园距离Comox镇仅有很短的路程，是一个独特的地形、部分被包围着科莫克斯湾。 这个区域两公里长，由沙滩，鹅卵石和岩石海滩组成，还有Willemard断崖的冰川和沙子。 海滩和悬崖是动态侵蚀和沉积系统的一部分，随着时间的推移改变了景观。 Goose Spit是观赏秃鹰，海鸥，潜鸟和各种冬季水鸟的热门场所。 Brant Geese在迁移北部时会在春季访问该地区。 许多人，特别是家庭成员一起，喜欢在断断崖下行走，在退潮时探索更远的潮汐池。 Goose Spit是稀有植物的家园，如黑虎杖和珍稀昆虫，如沙蝇蛾。
Goose Spit 风大狼大，游人开车去在步行到雪山下，或走阶梯上小山望远。我们老人家到此一游已经用了洪荒之力。
Goose Spit其实是一条连接Comox Valley和迷你雪山冰川岛的长堤，估计人工建造。长堤成为一个可野餐观浪下沙滩和儿童游玩区的公园。
The Filberg Lodge and nine acres of beautifully landscaped grounds are located on the harbour near the end of Comox Avenue. The estate was originally built for R.J. Filberg in 1929, and became a public facility after his death in 1977. The Heritage Filberg Lodge and and Park Association (a non-profit society) manages and develops the property on behalf of the municipality.
The rustic Filberg Lodge is a reflection of the skills of local craftsmen in the use of stone and timber. The original stonework was done by stone mason and head gardener William Meier. The Lodge’s warm interior complements the outside appearance with extensive hand-made woodwork and stonework.
The Gardens are a myriad of exotic and local trees and flowers. A wonderful place for a peaceful stroll or an afternoon picnic.
The Totem Pole was created by Richard Krenz and donated by Gordon and Ivy Wagner. The totem pole features the crests of the four main families of the Comox native people.
The Hands on Farm, operated by the Town of Comox during the summer months, houses various farm animals. Each year the Filberg Festival is held in Comox to provide a four day forum for hundreds of artists and performers to display their work and entertain.
The festival is held each year in early August. For this years dates visit the Filberg website. Some of Canada’s leading artists will be attending the festival to display their artwork and demonstrate their crafts.
For more information about this years festival, including bio’s of the featured artists, or the Filberg Estate in general, please visit the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park Association web site, or contact the Coordinator.
Goose Spit Park
Located a short distance from the Town of Comox, Goose Spit is a unique landform that partially encloses Comox Bay. A little over two kilometres long, the area is comprised of a sand, cobble and rock beach fed by glacial till and sand from the Willemar Bluffs. The beach and bluffs are part of a dynamic erosion and deposition system that changes the landscape over time. Goose Spit is a popular place to view Bald Eagles, gulls, loons and a variety of winter water birds. Brant Geese visit the area in the spring as they migrate north. Many people, especially families, enjoy walking below the bluffs and exploring the tidal pools farther on at low tide. The spit is home to rare species of plants such as black knotweed and rare insects such as the sand-verbena moth.
