An awesome place to either stroll by yourself or visit with the kids and watch them splash in delight in the area ponds. So beautiful and serene. Well maintained.

They need to clean up dog poop. Put some sand down so people could actually walk. It was to icy to do any walking.

We stopped here before heading out of town. It is a nice park along the rivers. Dogs especially love this place because they get to have their own enclosed parks, one along a side pool of the river. Saw lots of happy dogs here.

In the summertime you can swim, walk, and work on the exercise stations...then head to the concession stand for a cold treat or burger. Great little spot with lots of grass to let kids run around playing soccer or Frisbee or whatever

Lovely spot with the pools but geese running along the beach is yuck. Geese poop all over the walkways not appealing at all.

If I lived in Castlegar, I'd go to the Millennium Ponds every day. It's perfect for people watching, picnicking, enjoying the view of the Columbia River, heading off on a trail walk or a bike ride, quietly reading a book ... Morning, afternoon, evening—it's always...More

This is an awesome park - lots of places to lay out the blanket and picnic. The pools are great (3 of them) and are usually different temperatures. A fun spot to hang out.
