Castlegar’s Millennium Park Concession open for season

Concession customers consume more than 2000 pounds of fresh-cut fries every year.

If you have been craving fresh-cut fries, you’re in luck. The concession stand at Millennium Park has opened for the season.

The fries are one of the most popular menu items at the park, with visitors consuming more than 2,000 pounds of them every year.

The concession has been operated by the Castlegar and District Community Services Society as a social enterprise for several years. The program merges social services, employment training and revenue generation into one place.

Profits from the venture go towards helping the society fund existing programs and events and start new programs.

The menu this year includes burgers, hot dogs, soft-serve ice cream, frozen novelties, slushies and hot and cold drinks. The youth staffing the concession have even concocted the Whirlwind — an ice cream and candy combo.

Picnic tables in the park and pavilion are available for use at visitors’ discretion, but are not sanitized by the concession staff.

New this year is the option to call ahead to place an order at 250-608-5019.

The concession is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
