Brilliant Bridge Regional Park
Brilliant Bridge Regional Park is located in rural Castlegar in the community of Brilliant. The Brilliant Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Kootenay River constructed by the Doukhobor community in 1913. It was deemed redundant in the 1970s following the construction of a new highway bridge. In 1995 the site was declared a National Historic Site. In 2009, restoration commenced on the bridge with funding from multiple sponsors. Completed in 2010, the project cost over $1,000,000. More detailed information of the history, development and updated news on the Briliant Bridge can be found at the official online resource created by the Brilliant Bridge Restoration Committee at www.brilliantbridge.ca.
