Crescent Valley beach parking lot closed until Aug. 12

The parking lot at a popular local beach will be closed for another week for upgrades.

The Crescent Valley Beach parking lot will be closed until Aug. 12. The RDCK, with help from the Ministry of Transportation, Yellowhead Road and Bridge, and Selkirk Paving, will be upgrading the parking lot over the next week in conjunction with the paving of Highway 6.

This is the first of two phases to create a better parking lot for the popular regional park. The design is from the Crescent Valley Beach Park management plan process. The first phase will develop an entry into the park, 14 parking stalls and a drop-off/pick-up area. The second phase will develop approximately an additional 45 parking and two RV parking spaces.

The Crescent Valley Community Hall has offered space for users to park. However, if an event is taking place, such as a funeral, the Regional District of Central Kootenay asks park users to find other spots.

Yellowhead Road and Bridge and Selkirk Paving are donating a large portion of their services for this project.
