Newcomers to Castlegar might find themselves confused when locals refer to Millennium Park, Twin Rivers Park, Infied Park – not realizing all three monikers refer to the same green space surrounding the Millennium Walkway downtown.

City councillor Susan Heaton-Sherstobitoff said that pending improvements have galvanized city council into settling on a single name, once and for all.

“We have the Millennium Ponds going in, and the new concession stand,” she said. “We thought it was high time to get the public involved and come up with one name.

“It’s just better branding. We can get all our printed material the same, and get the same name on all the signage,” she said, adding there are currently signs calling the park Twin Rivers, and others calling it Millennium.

To this end, council is asking residents to complete a fast, easy, one-question survey indicating their preference for the park name (the survey can be found by clicking here).

The survey will close roughly mid-April, so city staff can have the name updated well in advance of the opening of new park features this summer/autumn.

If you have any questions, call City Hall at (250) 365-7227 or Public Works at (250) 365-5979.
