To look at it now, you may not think much about the approximately one-hectare parcel of land that is adjacent to the railway tracks, located between the Chamber of Commerce and Pealow’s Independent Grocery store. Locals know this land as the space where the outdoor Farmers’ Market takes place starting in April through September. This particular piece of land has taken on many roles throughout Creston’s history – it was a part of Crestbrook Forest Industries Ltd. sawmill, as well as home to Creston Building Supplies Ltd., followed by Beaver Lumber and Home Hardware. In 2009, Home Hardware relocated, leaving a vacant brownfield site behind, and in 2013, Town Council and staff started discussions about uses for this land that is centrally located in our downtown core. The concept of Market Park started to take shape, and continues to be a part of Council’s community vision.
