Update: Crescent Valley Beach parking

The RDCK is building a 59-stall parking lot at Crescent Valley Beach. The paving of phase 1 of the parking lot was recently completed. Site work including painting of lines, creating pathways from the parking lot, and parking curbs will continue through August. During this time the parking lot will be closed for work.

The RDCK thanks Selkirk Paving, Yellowhead Road and Bridge and the Ministry of Transportation for their work and donations-in-kind to complete the grading, sub base and paving of the front parking lot.

To help ensure the success of this project, the RDCK asks users of the park to not use the parking lot until it is complete. Unfortunately, the barricades to the lot where removed on Wednesday, August 12 and the parking lot was used prematurely which damaged the paving.

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 2 RV parking spaces and is expected to be complete by spring 2016.

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.
