Castlegar, BC

In Castlegar, you can balance work and lifestyle with an enviable climate that offers an unlimited range of outdoor recreational activities. Castlegar is located in the heart of the West Kootenays, nestled peacefully in the valley where the Columbia and Kootenay rivers merge as one. Being at the focal point of Highways 3, 3A and 22, Castlegar is within a 45 minute drive of Nelson, Trail, Christina Lake and Rossland. It’s 600 km between Vancouver and Calgary, and about 230km north of Spokane, Washington.

There are some 16,000+ residents in the city of Castlegar and surrounding areas. The three industries with highest employment are industrial manufacturing, retail trade, and educational services. It is the perfect place to call home for anyone who considers themselves a die-hard outdoor enthusiast right down to those whose limits reach as far as the fresh cut grass on the edge of an outdoor patio.

There are dozens of mountain biking trails in the West Kootenays such as the Grande Euphorium, and mountain climbers can explore the Kinnaird Bluffs, practically right in your back yard! All of the parks in the West Kootenays offer simple day hiking and many offer the kind of alpine access that makes life worth living. For hiking and backpacking, the Valhalla Provincial Park is a must. If you love camping try Pass Creek Regional Park, or grab the boat and family and head over to Syringa Creek Provincial Park for a weekend on Lower Arrow Lake located north of Hugh Keenleyside Dam. The Kootenay and Columbia Rivers make for great Rainbow and Walleye fishing.

There are beginner and expert creeks and rivers for the summer kayaker. The Upper Slocan River is great for beginners, while the more experienced vets may try their luck navigating Wilson Creek. Take to the tees at several golf courses such as Redstone, Champion Lakes Golf ClubCastlegar Golf Club and Birchbank Golf Club. If you’re a bit rusty, check out the par 3 Little Bear Golf Course located in Ootischenia.

In the winter months there is no shortage of activities including a vast amount of places to go snowmobiling, snow-shoeing or cross-country skiing in Nancy Greene Provincial Park. Red Mountain and Whitewater are two world-class alpine ski resorts located less than an hour’s drive away.

 Castlegar has many great city features as well. Located on the north side there is the Millennium Walkway, perfect for an evening stroll down the lamp-post lit path along the Kootenay-Columbia River. Zuckerberg Island Heritage Park is located just off the main land accessible by suspension bridge. North Castlegar is also where you will find 3 schools clustered together ranging from grades K-12, our Canadian Pacific Railway Museum, and Sculpture Walk. The Community Complex is located in Central Castlegar and is home to the Castlegar Rebels KIJHL hockey team.

Located just outside of Castlegar in Ootischenia, you will find the Russian Doukhobor Discovery Center and the Kootenay gallery of Art, History and Science. Castlegar is also home to Selkirk College located across from our West Kootenay Regional Airport and Casino.

Castlegar is a city that prides itself on its quality of life being synonymous with sustainability. Harnessing the power of a strong social network, residents here place high value on ensuring Castlegar remains a diversified, sustainable community that its residents are proud to be a part of, and we hope you will be a part of our incredible city one day too.
