The design incorporates the look of steel, bricks, and powder-coated aluminum, to reflect the community’s industrial heritage.

Development was made possible through extensive engagement with community groups, members of the public, and the Revelstoke Museum and Archives.

Improvements to signage were made possible with Resort Municipality Initiative funding through the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport.
