Castlegar Waterfront Master Plan

BACKGROUND - Located at the confluence of the Columbia and Kootenay rivers, Castlegar stretches approximately 20 kilometres alongside the west bank of the Columbia River. In 2011, the public consultation phase of Castlegar’s Official Community Plan (OCP) identified a strong desire to improve public access and accessibility to the Columbia River, and this is reflected in a number of policy and action steps identified in the OCP.

Waterfront Plan

The first project undertaken to this end was implementing the Millennium Park Master Plan (Appendix A to Castlegar’s OCP). A number of key components of this plan have been completed or are nearing completion, including natural swimming ponds, a mountain bike skills park, expanded soccer fields, volleyball and tennis courts, a dog park and a concession.

Recognizing the potential to expand on the work done to date, the City and its residents have embarked on a project to develop a master plan to act as a guide and overall vision for the future development of waterfront recreational amenities along the Columbia River waterfront.
