Creston Skatepark Closed Until Further Notice

The skateboard park at the Creston and District Community Complex has been closed effective immediately, the Regional District of Central Kootenay announced today. The closure will be in effect until necessary repairs can be completed. The park is likely to remain closed until spring 2016.

"The RDCK’s responsibility is to provide services to our residents, but more importantly, we need to ensure that the facilities for which we’re responsible are safe," said Larry Binks, Chair of the Creston Valley Services Committee.

An overall skate park assessment performed by Spectrum Skateparks identified immediate concerns that were deemed to pose some risk to users of the park. While some issues, such as concrete deterioration on the 15-year old structure can be addressed with short-term repairs, a decision on the overall future of the existing skate park is likely to be made in the upcoming months.
