Coldstream Tourism and Recreation Survey

We would appreciate hearing your views by completing this short survey of 13 questions.  The deadline for submitting your survey is Friday, July 20

Coldstream is host to many tourism and recreation amenities.  The District of Coldstream would like to hear which ones you use, how you enjoy them with friends and family, and where you access these amenities.  As well, we'll be asking you about the future of tourism and recreation in Coldstream.

Coldstream Council has endorsed a proposal by the Coldstream Tourism Committee to initiate a vision for tourism planning.  In doing so, we hope to better understand how Coldstream can best manage and benefit from the growing popularity of our recreation amenities.  Feedback from local residents is the first step in building this vision.  “Tourists have always been welcome in Coldstream.  It is important to balance the pressures of tourism with the lifestyle of the community,” said Council.

Members of the Coldstream Tourism Committee have shared their experiences, saying that “As Coldstream residents, we love our recreation and active lifestyle amenities!  These amenities inspired many of us to move here and invest in our community, just as it did in the late 1800s when Lord and Lady Aberdeen created memories spent in ‘gloriously beautiful country as to scenery and climate’ and visits to Long Lake [Kalamalka], ‘the most lovely lake in Canada’ (quotes from Dr. Margaret Ormsby’s book Coldstream Nulli Secundus).”

We have many special places and experiences to enjoy and share with our visitors.  Kalamalka Lake is one of ‘our’ gems for outdoor recreation and our iconic visual amenity.  Coldstream’s natural parks and trails provide space for active and passive forms of recreation.  The first phase of the Okanagan Rail Trail is nearly complete and will eventually be part of a trail system extending from Sicamous to Osoyoos.  We also have a limited number of businesses (bed‑and-breakfast homes, food-and-beverage providers, etc.) that welcome visitors, as well as events, historic features, and agricultural amenities that, together, create a unique palette of opportunities to enrich our lifestyle and to potentially grow economic opportunities through tourism.
