The Creston Valley Youth Soccer Association’s U12 team is one of many that will benefit from upgrades to Kinsmen Park.

Creston credit union donates $2,500 to youth soccer association

Web Lead

The Creston Valley Youth Soccer Association (CVYSA) is pleased to announce receipt of a $2,500 grant from the Creston and District Credit Union. This generous grant will allow for the next phase of work to be completed on the field at Kinsmen Park.

The spring and summer of 2012 have seen significant improvements made to the quality of the playing surface at the park. Old tarmac has been removed and much of the field has been levelled. Dedicated volunteers Todd Hawton, Bill Ferguson, Jim Jacobsen and Pam Huber have co-ordinated the effort.

The next phase will include final levelling and prepping of the field, adding topsoil and reseeding areas in need. User groups to benefit from the upgrade include the CVYSA and the Creston Valley Slo-pitch Association.

Though not part of the current project, the possible future enhancement of the walking trail that surrounds the park is being considered by a separate volunteer group.

The parkland is owned by School District No. 8 (Kootenay Lake) and is currently leased to the CVYSA.

As work progresses, the CVYSA extends its appreciation to all involved for making this positive enhancement to Creston a reality.
