Family Fun

Park yourself here for a while

The pace of life in Creston may be gentle, but don’t be fooled – families here love to stay active! We’ve got a lively sports community, with minor soccer, baseball, hockey, gymnastics, and rowing. And it’s not limited to locals: Creston has a broad array of sports facilities to keep the athletes in your family happy! The Creston and District Community Complex has a playground, a soccer field, baseball diamonds, a beach volleyball area, a skateboard park, an indoor swimming pool, a hockey rink, curling sheets, and a fitness centre. Tennis players will find outdoor courts at Prince Charles Secondary School.  Just outside of town, Canyon Park offers a ballpark, outdoor fitness stations, a horse arena, a community hall, and camping facilities. The nearby Goat River is great for swimming.

For a relaxing day in the sun, you’re invited to visit one of Creston’s lovely parks. Centennial Park is the largest park maintained by the Town of Creston, an inviting place for families in a pleasant woodland setting. It features the Creston Rotary Spray Park – a great place for kids to cool off in the summer, – a playground, a baseball diamond, and a barbecue area. Millenium Park’s unique and beautiful landscaping, complete with ornamental trees and a fountain, sets it apart. The locally designed and constructed Japanese-style garden was a generous gift from Creston’s sister city of Kaminoho, Japan. The park also boasts a covered bandstand, making it a popular venue for concerts, festivals, and presentations in the summer.

To take in some local history, visit the Creston Museum – one of the best little museums you’ll ever find.

Located in the Legend Logos building is the Yaqan Nuki Heritage Centre. It is a community heritage museum where local people contributed to the written knowledge of the Yaqan Nukiy Peoples.  Historically an oral tradition, where knowledge has only been written down since the 1970s, the Yaqan Nuki Heritage Centre houses a wealth of local memorabilia and history of the local Aboriginal People.  Explore, experience, and learn from the People.  View the fish trap, buckskin dress and beadwork, the miniature tulle tipi, the unique sturgeon-nosed canoe....the legends outlined in the geography of the Creston Valley. Learn the stories behind the mural designed by community artists. Legend Tours are available but must be booked in advance.

For guaranteed giggles and a family challenge, putter over to the Creston Golf Club’s par-3 course and mini-golf. Or, plan your trip around a great community event like the annual Blossom Festival, Fall Fair, or Santa Claus Parade.
