Nelson is very proud to have hosted a variety of sport events such as Hockey Day in Canada (Nelson), various Provincial youth tournaments and adult recreational tournaments. Most recently, it was one of the West Kootenay Tri-Cities of the BC Senior Games, an event that attracted about 5,000 participants, families and friends to Nelson and our nearby communities.
Existing facilities are well utilized and are regularly upgraded. New facilities have been built over the past five to ten years, such as the Nelson & District Community Complex and the Lakeside Playing fields. Nelson boasts one of the oldest and most cared for Ice arenas in the province that remains in full use today – so much so that it offers a Sport Culture Museum as part of its charm. Our sport facilities cater to Field, Ice, Gym, Alpine, Cycling, Aquatic, Lake and rapid water activities for training, tournaments or meets and are supported by a strong community volunteer base.
