The Nelson Community

Those of you who now call Nelson home already know what a special place it is. For those of you from away, Nelson is a small city of about 10,000 people, nestled in the Selkirk Mountains of BC’s Southern Interior.

Here’s a video that’s part of a recent Macleans Magazine article  listing Nelson as one of the top “ten places to see” in Canada.

Other people’s perspectives are always helpful in understanding what draws people to Nelson and keeps them here. A few follow:

“BC’s best kept secret” BCTV News

“This small town will make you reassess what you think civilization should be like.” The Guardian

“Given its setting on Kootenay Lake, in the heart of a mountain range, Nelson is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream” LA Times.

Nelson is a small mountain town with just the right selection of big city attributes. And Nelson Commons is right in the middle of it all—walking distance to great shopping and restaurants on historic Baker Street, directly across the street from the newly revitalized Nelson Civic Theatre, and a full-service medical clinic. Just up the hill from the lake and down the hill from Gyro Park, one of the city’s many beautiful public spaces.

Here’s a little video that sums up life in Nelson, in every season.

Ok…and just one more. This from Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism featuring our local arts, culture and snow.
