Perhaps you’ve envisioned yourself living the quintessential Kootenay lifestyle, but you’ve yet to locate the perfect community.

Maybe you’re hoping to live in a home that doesn’t break the bank and puts you close to the beautiful rivers, lakes, and mountains British Columbia is famous for. So welcome to beautiful Creston; we’re willing to bet you’ve been searching for us all along!

WHY CRESTON VALLEY?
We have four great seasons in the Creston Valley, but spring comes early by Canadian standards. Like the Okanagan, we're renowned for the quality, quantity, and variety of fruit we grow, including grapes. One of our favourite pastimes is enjoying a glass or two of our favourite wine from one of 4 local wineries at an event called “Wine Down Friday”! Fruit, wine, art, and artisans; we have it all. Creston’s award-winning outdoor Farmers’ Market proudly showcases an abundance of produce and other wares unique to the area.

You’ll find comfort in knowing your neighbours well if you're raising a family with us, as Creston boasts a deep sense of community. The Kootenay Lake School District has demonstrated its commitment to your child’s education by developing a close-knit community of schools around Creston, with small class sizes and teachers who foster ideas of academic success, creativity and imagination, citizenship, and resiliency. As a result, you can rest assured that your child will get a very well-rounded upbringing, in and out of the classroom.

Our sports community is lively (go Thundercats!), and we have an array of facilities, indoor and out, to keep all of the athletes in your family happy. Enjoy our Community Complex, which boasts a comprehensive fitness studio, skating arena, curling rink and lounge, soccer field, beach volleyball courts, skateboard park, an aquatic centre, and excellent leisure classes!

For those of you seeking more adventure, our valley does not disappoint! Nestled between the steep scarps of the Purcell Mountains to the east and the neighbouring Selkirk Mountains to the west, Creston lies in the ‘heart of the Kootenays.’ Whether it’s summiting one of our nearby peaks, cascading down the Goat River, water-skiing on Kootenay Lake, or fishing Duck Lake for an abundance of Bass, there’s something for everyone here, year-round. While Creston experiences mild winters, the nearby Kootenay Pass receives a startling amount of snow and offers outstanding snowmobiling and ski touring in the winter. If that's not enough, we’re only 1.5 hours away from 4 world-class resorts, including Whitewater, Red Mountain, Kimberley, and Schweitzer in the USA. Enjoy everything the Kootenays offers; thriving arts, culture, and adventure, knowing that the workload is shared evenly among team members.

WHY CRESTON VET?
Driven by a strong community service philosophy and a commitment to providing a respectful, inclusive, and diverse environment, we've been an integral hub for veterinary care in the Kootenays for nearly 50 years. So, if you're looking for an opportunity to experience the continued legacy of Dr. Dave Perrin, author of the "Adventures of a Country Vet" book series, this is it!
