The site design of the Crescent Valley Beach park

RDCK begins work on Crescent Valley beach parking lot

The first phase of the project will see a new entrance to the park, 14 parking stalls, and a drop-off/pick-up area.

The Regional District of Central Kootenay will be upgrading the parking lot at the Crescent Valley beach over the next month. During this time the parking lot will be closed periodically.

In collaboration with the Ministry of Transportation, Yellowhead Road and Bridge and Selkirk Paving, the lot will be upgraded in conjunction with paving on Highway 6. The lot will be closed on days the work occurs.

This is the first of two phases to expand the parking lot for the popular regional park. It 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 spaces and two RV spaces.

“The present historic parking situation is dangerous,” says regional director Walter Popoff. “Completing both phases of the parking lot will make visiting Crescent Valley beach much safer.”

The full draft management plan for the beach can be viewed here.
