Popular Taghum Beach Park is about to expand with the recent purchase of 8.3 acres adjacent to the day-use area, announced the Regional District of Central Kootenay in a press release.

“We are thrilled about this acquisition of land which will improve the park for the many residents and visitors who enjoy it,” said Ramona Faust, RDCK Area E Director and Chair of the Nelson, E, F, G Parks Commission. “Our plan is to add parking space, improve traffic flow, build trails and construct a viewpoint.”

The RDCK purchased the property for $331,916.23 from parks commission funds and grant contributions from Electoral Areas E and F.

“The next step is to upgrade the washroom facilities, parking area and waterfront and picnic sites,” said Cary Gaynor, parks operations supervisor for the RDCK.

“We have something very special at Taghum Beach and have just made it that much better,” said Gaynor.
