The Regional District of Central Kootenay wants to hear residents’ thoughts on parks, trails, and water access in the region.

In a May 22 news release, the RDCK announced the development of a parks, trails and water strategy to help inform planning and decision-making.

Residents can share their thoughts by filling out a survey available at or by placing points and adding comments onto an interactive map at before June 19.

“Our goal at the RDCK is to provide top-notch nature-based recreation opportunities while supporting the economic, social, and environmental objectives of the region,” said Trisha Davison, RDCK regional manager of recreation and client services.

“To achieve this, we’re crafting a Regional Parks, Trails, and Water Access Strategy to guide our efforts for the next 10 years.”
