Nelson writer/actor/comedian Lucas Myers gives Fairview its due in the new issue of British Columbia Magazine.

In the one-page feature with photos by David Gluns and Dave Heath, Myers writes that his neighbourhood is filled with “hidden gems.”

His favourite aspect? “Proximity and proximity. In two minutes, you can be hiking or biking deep in the woods above town, or paddleboarding beneath the bridge.”

His least favourite? “Goose droppings.”

From a culinary perspective, Myers mentions the Rose Garden Cafe at Lakeside Park, Selkirk College professional cooking program, and The Bent Fork.

He also suggests the ideal weekend afternoon should consist of heading up Svoboda Road on your mountain bike, then getting an ice cream cone at Dairy Queen and relaxing with it at Lakeside Park, watching Streetcar 23 go by.

A feature in the same edition of the magazine entitled “The Ultimate BC Camping Guide” includes three West Kootenay spots: Howser Park at Howser is listed among “Top secret spots,” while Gwillim Lakes campground in Valhalla Provincial Park was among those named “Best for wildlife.” A reader also suggested Summit Lake Provincial Park south of Nakusp as one of their favourite spots.
