The Trails for the Creston Valley Society feel there’s a lack of regional park space in the area. They’re hoping the issue can be addressed as the Regional District of Central Kootenay updates its Parks and Rec Master Plan with new priorities for the next 25 years. Society President Mary Jane Blackmore says access to water is one area in particular they want addressed and suggests a park on Goat River as a solution.

Although the RDCK Board did just approve a loan for the creation of a regional park in Crawford Bay, Blackmore feels there’s more than could be done.

The RDCK sent a questionnaire to households in Areas A, B and C and the town of Creston this week for public feedback on the Parks and Rec Master Plan.
