Crescent Valley Beach parking lot closed

The Crescent Valley Beach parking lot will be closed until August 12, 2015.  The RDCK, with assistance from the Ministry of Transportation, Yellow Head Road and Bridge, and Selkirk Paving, will be upgrading the parking lot over the next week in conjunction with the paving of Highway 6.

This is phase one of two to create the parking lot for the popular regional park. The design is from the Crescent Valley Beach Park Management Plan process. The first phase will develop the entry into the park, 14 parking stalls and a drop-off/pick-up area. Phase 2 will develop approximately an additional 45 parking and two RV parking spaces.

The Crescent Valley Community Hall has generously offered space for users to park. However, if an event is taking place, such as a funeral, we ask that park users find another safe spot to park their vehicle.

Yellowhead Road and Bridge and Selkirk Paving are donating a large portion of their services for this important community project.

The development of the parking lot is only one aspect of the Management Plan for Crescent Valley Beach. The draft Management Plan can be viewed at:

The RDCK will continue to provide regular project updates.
