Brilliant Bridge Regional Park is located in rural Castlegar in the community of Brilliant. The Brilliant Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Kootenay River constructed by the Doukhobor community in 1913. It was deemed redundant in the 1970s following the construction of a new highway bridge. In 1995 the site was declared a National Historic Site. In 2009, restoration commenced on the bridge with funding from multiple sponsors. Completed in 2010, the project cost over $1,000,000.
