All of the artworks are available for sale or lease. Sculpturewalk 2016 features 31 sculptures from local and international artists. Ballots/maps are located in red ballot boxes along the route (the start of the route is at the Kootenay Market (635 Columbia Avenue), though you can begin the walk from anywhere. Ballots/maps are also available at the Castlegar Chamber of Commerce, City Hall, or the Kootenay Gallery.

The Island was covered in snow and the trails weren't maintained. Just can't visit much in the winter.
