Kimberley is about community first - our incredible recreation assets attract visitors, but it is the community that brings them back.
Kimberley has an impressive array of community assets, including 2 indoor ice surfaces, a curling center, an aquatic center, a conference center, the largest park in Western Canada, an arts center and much more.

With a total asset replacement value of over $660M, the City invests between $6M to $10M annually in Capital Projects to replace and maintain these assets.
