The first phase of the new parking lot at the Crescent Valley Beach (shown in upper right) has now been paved. The second phase won't be completed until spring.

First phase of Crescent Valley Beach parking lot completed

Site work including painting of lines, creating pathways, and parking curbs will continue through August.

Paving of the first phase of a new parking lot at Crescent Valley Beach is finished.

Site work including painting of lines, creating pathways, and parking curbs will continue through August. During this time the parking lot will be closed.

Selkirk Paving, Yellowhead Road and Bridge and the Ministry of Transportation provided in-kind donations to complete the grading, sub base and paving of the front lot.

However, barricades to the lot were removed last Wednesday and the parking lot was used prematurely, which damaged the paving.

“To help ensure the success of this project, the RDCK asks users of the park to not use the parking lot until it is complete,” the regional district said in a prepared statement.

The first phase of the project will develop the entry into the park, 14 parking stalls and a drop off/pick up area. The second phase will develop an additional 45 parking stalls and two RV parking spaces and is expected to be complete by spring 2016.
