Creston Skate Park:Closed for Good

CRESTON— The skate park at the Creston and District Community Complex has been closed permanently due to condition and safety risks to users, the RDCK advised today.

The RDCK is committed to replacing the skate park. Funding has been allocated in the 2016 budget to begin planning site selection, preliminary design and cost estimates for a new facility.

"The RDCK Directors determined that spending significant money on temporary repairs at the old park wasn’t the best use of resources," said Larry Binks, Chair of the Creston Valley Services Committee. "The plan is to prepare for a new and modern skate park by getting the community engaged and prepared for funding and partnership opportunities"

The existing park will be demolished and removed from the Creston and District Community Complex in 2016.

RDCK staff will be working on planning and design for a new skate park in the next few months.
