With temperatures dropping, the City of Castlegar has closed Millennium Park natural ponds, Kinsmen splash park, and the Kinnaird Park washrooms for the season.
Kinsmen Park washrooms will also close next week,
“It is always hard to close these amenities after the busy summer season,” says Crystal Bazar, Parks Foreman. “We encourage the community to continue using our many year-round amenities including playgrounds, ball diamonds, and Millennium Park tennis and pickleball courts, walkways, dog park, and recently upgraded washrooms.”
One of the City’s strategic priorities is to create special places and recreation for everyone. As part of creating special places, the City is committed to building on its recreation assets, both built and natural, to provide recreational and cultural services.
The City of Castlegar is a service centre in the West Kootenay. The diversified and growing economy is focused on the forestry, energy and mining sectors in the valley, and commercial services in the City. Quality of life features backcountry adventure and an increasingly dynamic urban culture, including the Millennium Park & Ponds and Sculpture Walk.
