The Creston Valley begins at the US border 11 km south of the town of Creston and parallels the east shore of Kootenay Lake to Riondel. The Valley stretches to include the Town of Creston and all of its neighboring communities – Erickson, Canyon, Lister, West Creston, Arrow Creek, Kitchener, Wynndel and Yahk.
The Creston Valley has a temperate climate which plays a vital role in its economic well-being. The agriculture industry is a major player, with more than 20,000 acres of reclaimed land – some of the most fertile land in British Columbia.
Creston offers a quiet, rural setting within reasonable distance of larger, urban centers in British Columbia, Alberta and the US. Nestled between the Purcell and Selkirk Mountains, the Town of Creston comprises 911 hectares and includes about 5,300 residents.
Whether visiting or seeking to relocate, Creston has a complete range of services and facilities which provide for a comfortable and satisfying lifestyle.
Creston offers a wide range of recreational opportunities. Included are: a professional 18-hole golf course, a par 3 golf course, a 5-pin bowling alley with 8 lanes and automatic scoring, 2 fitness centres, several tennis courts, baseball diamonds, soccer fields, a four hundred seat auditorium, a modem, air-conditioned Recreational Complex equipped with an ice rink which doubles as a rollerblading rink (Spring/Summer), a 6-sheet curling rink, and a 25 metre outdoor swimming pool and a wading pool. The Complex is situated on 17 acres in the heart of Creston and offers many active-living programs as well as a Spring Trade Show and Fall Fair. Creston is also the home of the (Junior A) Thunder hockey team.
