RDCK Begins Work on Crescent Valley Beach Parking Lot
July 21, 2015
The RDCK will be upgrading the parking lot at Crescent Valley Beach over the next month. During this time the present parking lot will be closed periodically for work.
In collaboration with the Ministry of Transportation, Yellowhead Road and Bridge and Selkirk Paving, the lot will be upgraded in conjunction with paving on Highway 6. To facilitate the work the lot will be closed on days when work will occur.
This is phase one of two to create the parking lot for the popular regional park. The design is from the Crescent Valley Beach Park Management Plan process. The first phase will develop the entry into the park, 14 parking stalls and a drop-off/pick-up area. Phase 2 will develop an additional approximately 45 parking and two RV parking spaces.
“The present historic parking situation is dangerous,” says Walter Popoff, Area H Director. “Completing both phases of the parking lot will make visiting Crescent Valley beach much safer.”
The development of the parking lot is only one aspect of the management plan for Crescent Valley Beach. The draft plan can be viewed at:
The RDCK will continue to provide regular project updates.
