A lot was happening on August 4 at Millennium Park. The ponds certainly were a focal point but the major events continued following the unveiling.

A significant park addition yet to come was officially kicked off with the ‘golden shovel’ ground breaking for the combination concession/picnic/storage facility-the Celgar Pavilion to take shape north of the ponds adjacent to the current changing facilities.

The Rotary-spawned plan is in the advanced stages of design and development and has received important and generous backing, financial and otherwise, from entities including Zellstoff Celgar, The City of Castlegar, Columbia Basin Trust, Heritage Credit Union; Kootenay Savings Credit Union, RDCK Area “J.”

Rotary Pavilion-committee co-chair Dave Kravski made sure to acknowledge the financial contributions of both local Rotary Clubs as well as the important help from WSA Engineering and Castlegar Minor Soccer Association.

The project now waits only for detailed plans and building permits before work can begin and those are expected within a matter or weeks.
