Your Mayor

Mayor's Message
On behalf of our Town Council, I am pleased to introduce you to the Town of Creston and our website. Thank you for checking us out online. Creston is alive with community spirit and volunteers.

Our dedicated community groups and service clubs have built a strong foundation of amenities in the Creston Valley. Spend time at our Millenium Park, located on 16th Avenue South to relax on a park bench or watch the koi swim. Conveniently located next door is our RV parking, with sanitary unload facility and potable water filling station. Centennial Park is located on Erickson Road just east of Highway #21. Here our local Rotary Clubs have built a water splash park, a youth outdoor play gym and an outdoor seniors’ fitness workout area.

Our Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce, located in the downtown area, houses our BC Tourism information centre which provides public washrooms for your use.
