A Public Meeting was held on June 22, 2015 to gather your comments on the Draft Waterloo Eddy Regional Park Management Plan.  This 3.3 hectare waterfront park is along the eastern shores of Columbia River, south of Castlegar, within Area J of the Regional District of Central Kootenay. The Draft Management Plan includes a range of recommendations and proposals to access to the waterfront and preserve the park’s natural environment.

This waterfront access park is primarily used by local resident for day use recreation includingboating, fishing, hiking, swimming and picnicking. It is also one of two staging areas for the Castlegar portion of the Columbia Trail that connects with the City of Trail along the east side of the Columbia River. The park has minimal facilities.  

Management Plan

In September 2014, the Regional District engaged Juliet Anderton Consulting http://www.julietandertonconsulting.ca/ and Ecoscape Environmental http://ecoscapeltd.com/ to prepare the Waterloo Eddy Regional Park Management Plan.  The management plan process has included consultation with interested organizations, approval authorities and the public. 

The Park Management Plan has been created to define the future direction, policies, priorities and actions for implementation by the Regional District.  Short and long term implementation strategies are identified to guide the operations, development and stewardship of the park, with a 10-year focus.
