Castlegar is the sculpture capital of Canada and it’s incredible how “Art” affects the young and old alike. It’s interesting and it just makes you feel good!
I love hearing the perspective of people new to the Community. So many of the Newbies prefer North Castlegar and what it has to offer. The millennium park and walkway is something to behold with the pools, and idyllic walk along the river’s edge. Charming character homes with smaller lots and friendly neighborhoods abound in the North end. You won’t find parking meters here; just a kindness meter. People can deposit coins just like a parking meter but all funds go to the local food bank. The south end is where you’ll find most of the restaurants, great shopping, aquatic center, multiplex theater and beautiful subdivisions as well.
Imagine living in a Community where people are smiling and happy. It just feels comfortable; and it’s so easy to live here. The true meaning of “Kootenay Time” is that it’s really just a state of mind!
