The RDCK Plans For Recreation Development at Campbell Field
The planning work for the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is still ongoing for potential recreational development at Campbell Field. Located at the Playmor Junction, adjacent to Mount Sentinel Secondary School and the Slocan Valley Rail Trail, Campbell Field was gifted to the RDCK in 2016 by the South Slocan Sports Association.Through the fall hundreds of residents and community groups shared their thoughts for the future of Campbell Field. Thank you for taking the time to participate.
The RDCK is working behind the scenes analyzing the responses we have collected. As well we are in conversation with other community stakeholders and potential partners about the future of the site.
The South Slocan Sports Association owned Campbell Field since the 1930s, when it was acquired from West Kootenay Power, before generously donating the land to the RDCK. It has always provided area residents with a site for sports and cultural activities and thanks to a covenant on the title of the property it will always be used for those purposes.
RDCK Area H Director Walter Popoff immediately saw the potential of Campbell Field as an ideal location for recreation development and is excited for the possibilities, ”Campbell Field is a central location for many people in the RDCK. The ability to satisfy the recreation needs of area residents is a great opportunity that we need to explore. This is a great gift that we have been given.”
Later this spring a concept plan will be developed that will show potential indoor and/or outdoor amenities to be developed at the site. Accompanying the concept will be estimates for captial (construction) and ongoing operating costs. Once the concept has been created it will be shared with the community.
