Lardeau Regional Park Management Plan

We look forward to your involvement in the planning process for the Lardeau Regional Park Management Plan.


This 2.09 hectare waterfront day use park is on the western shore of Kootenay Lake in the community of Lardeau in Area D of the Regional District of Central Kootenay.

Lardeau Regional Park is primarily used by local residents for day-use public recreation opportunities, including boating (there is a boat launch and parking), picnicking and beach related activities. The property is owned by the Province of BC and is operated by the Regional District through Licence of Occupation.

In 2015/2016 RDCK staff investigated options for the development of the park and held open house meetings in the communities of Meadow Creek and Kaslo. This process has contributed to the next step which is to develop a Park Management Plan.

Park Management Plan
In September 2018, the Regional District engaged Urban Systems to prepare the Lardeau Regional Park Management Plan. The management plan process will include consultation with interested organizations, approval authorities and the public.

The proposed park management plan will define the future direction, policies, priorities and actions for implementation by the Regional District.  Short and long term implementation strategies will be identified to guide the operations, development and stewardship of the park, with a 10-year focus.
