This beautiful island, nested across from the confluence of the Columbia and Kooteney rivers, is a hidden gem. A network of trails provides beautiful views and the tranquillity of nature. On my visit the suspension bridge was not open. It looks like it may be shut down for some time? But it is a wonderful visit.
I also highly recommend it as a destination if you’re putting some miles in running in castlegar. It’s a fun place to include on your run because it makes a natural turnaround.

It is a nice walk over the suspension bridge to the island; however, we encountered lots of mosquitos and other bugs on the island, so remember to bring your bug repellant with you. There is some interesting history on the island and some good views of the river. It is a little tricky to find the entrance to the park as there is only a single car lane into the park and a small parking lot.

This island was pretty cool. It would be a great place for a picnic or to spend some time at the water. We really wanted to see the actual Zuckerberg house but it was locked up when we went. Not sure when it is open to the public but might be worth finding out before you go.

Parked at the end of 9th Ave, I went for a quick exploration on this Island. Just before I entered, I realized I could access the island either by a suspension bridge or a "dyke" walkway. Scenery across the bridge over the river is very beautiful. I hiked up a little and found a historic site where there was a neatly restored Russian Chapel House built by Mr Zuckerberg in 1935 and a woman statue. It was about 6pm early August. The island was quiet but I came across families with kids and a jogger. The island is at the confluence of the Kootenay and Columbia Rivers, hence a good viewpoint. I took a short cut to walk the trail and exit the island by the "dyke" trail. If I had more time, I would definitely do the whole loop trail. According to a local resident that I asked, you could walk from the Millennium Park via the walkway plus an unpaved path to this Island or visa versa within 20 min.

Take the walk over the suspension bridge and then go around the island. Lots of Russian history. The house has an interesting design. Could not go inside, maybe because of the Covid Virus. Worth the walk.

This is a great easy hike. The island has an interesting history that you can explore at the Zuckerberg house.

This small island is basically a short walk through the forest, not a lot to see but still worth the visit, first off its Free, yay, there are older buildings on site with some history about the russian immagrants there are no amenities on the island which you reach by a moving bridge room for wheelchairs and strollers an easy walk fun for all

There's a great suspension bridge and you can walk all around the island as well as follow several paths that lead to the middle and out again. Great dog walk.
