Illecillewaet Greenbelt Society inaugurate new bench designed by wood carver Rod Aspeslet.

City councillors, staff, artists and members of the Illecillewaet Greenbelt Society enjoy a seat on the new bench installed alongside the trails near Kovach Park. The bench was built by local wood carver Rod Aspeslet. The bench, along with new signs created by local artists, were installed this fall by the society, with help through funding from the province’s tourism infrastructure fund.Pictured, back row from left: Artists Mas Matsushita and Nancy Geismar, with Tim Palmer, the City of Revelstoke’s Chief Administrative Officer.
