Kimberley's 'Rails to Trails'! What was once an abandoned CP Railway between Kimberley and Cranbrook has been converted into 30 kilometres of paved trails, great for biking, walking, running, and roller-blading. With no steep hills, this trail isn't too challenging. It offers spectacular scenic views of the Rocky Mountains and surrounding area, and is definitely a great activity for a sunny day!
The Kimberley Underground Mining Railway & Interpretive Tour (opened spring 2007). Travel by train from downtown Kimberley up the beautiful Mark Creek Valley, take a detour through a 750' underground tunnel, which includes a guided tour in the Underground Interpretive Centre and a short walk to the historic Sullivan Mine Powerhouse, and then pop out the other end on route to the base of the Kimberley Alpine Ski Resort. This is a must see (see link to website below).
The New City of Kimberley Aquatic Center; another must see amenity for the whole family to enjoy. Includes; 5 lane lap pool, hot tub, sauna and children's water feature area with a lazy river - guaranteed blast! (see link to website below).
Kimberley's Skate Park opened in fall 2007! Its a great recreational facility to bring the kids for skateboarding, biking, and rollerblading! The outdoor park showcases a wide variety of ramps and rails for use, whether your a pro showing off your skills, or just a beginner! The Kimberley Skate Park is located on Rotary Drive.
Kimberley's Farmers Market located on Howard st. (above the platzl) takes place every Thursday evening from 5 - 730pm during the summer. Come get your fresh food from local farmers and local food producers, as well as crafts from local artisans and all kinds of homemade goodies.
