Parks and Recreation Master Plan for Town of Creston and Areas A, B, and C


The Regional District of Central Kootenay is undertaking the development of a Parks and Recreation Master Plan for the Town of Creston and Areas A, B and C. The Master Plan will guide the RDCK in making decisions about parks and recreation provision and resource priorities.

The Master Plan will assess the current state and identify priorities and recommendations regarding the provision of parks and recreation, active lifestyle opportunities, and services to meet the needs of residents and visitors over the next 25 years. RC Strategies + PERC (a planning company) has been retained to work with the RDCK to complete the Master Plan. It is scheduled to be completed by December 2018.

What information will be used to develop the Master Plan?

  • Inventory of opportunities and their use
  • Broad trends in the provision of parks and recreation
  • Population analysis
  • Relevant local, regional, provincial, and national plans/ frameworks
  • Community engagement

Consultation with the community is critical to the development of the Master Plan. Residents, community organizations, and stakeholders will be asked to share their thoughts on parks and recreation.

Castlegar & District Community Complex - Proposed Enhancements

Findings from the Castlegar and Areas I & J Recreation Master Planning process showed that the community wanted improvements to the Complex, and provided insight for the Recreation Commission to move forward.

Several subsequent public consultations have occurred (a public open House, an online survey and a mail survey) to define the scope of the potential enhancements. Thank you to everyone who participated and provided their feedback throughout this process.

The project is at the point where voter approval is needed to proceed. The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) has approved a referendum to take place June 23, 2018 for the borrowing of $22,000,000.00 million dollars for the proposed enhancements.

Visit to learn more about the proposed enhancements, and watch for more information the referendum to come.
