Weary walkers on Waldie Island have new place to rest and dine

New picnic table on Waldie Island modelled after US National Park tables

Steve Rigby, a longtime member and volunteer with the Castlegar Friends of Parks and Trails Society, has built a picnic table using his portable sawmill and the plans of US National Parks picnic tables.

The new resting and dining amenity has been installed along the Waldie Island Trail in a shady spot where people can enjoy views of both the island and the river.

Castlegar Friends of Parks and Trails Society is grateful for Rigby’s┬álong service and generosity to the Society and our community.
