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. During the summer of 2018, residents, community organizations, and stakeholders were asked to share their thoughts on parks and recreation via surveys and questionnaires.

Open houses

Two open houses were held during which key elements of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan were displayed--one on Tuesday, May 14 at the Riondel Community Centre, and one on May 15 at the Creston & District Community Complex.

Castlegar & District Community Complex - Proposed Enhancements

In 2015, the Castlegar and District Recreation Commission embarked on a master planning process to plan for and enhance the provision of recreational services and facilities into the future. Findings from this process showed that the community wanted improvements to the Complex, and provided insight for the 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 went to referendum on June 23, 2018 for the borrowing of $22,000,000.00 million dollars for the proposed enhancements. The referendum was declared unsuccessful.
