Pothole Park in downtown Invermere is a small but lovely green space that is busy during the year with various community events.
The name ‘Pothole Park’ may seem rather odd to one who has never seen it but when you do, you’ll always remember the name. For it is sunken into the ground, below the surface of the street. Once a wild space with a small forest, some wild grasses and not much else, the District of Invermere, in 2005, took the initiative to turn it into a space to make the community proud and it definitely does. With a pathway around the perimeter of the space, a tiny bridge, large rocks that serve perfectly for seating, an outdoor amphitheatre and well-maintained washrooms, Pothole Park really shines.
It is the venue of choice for such events as Summerlude, Movies in the Mountains, Valley Appreciation Day, the Invermere Light-up Festival at the beginning of the Christmas season, etc. On a summer day, the park is a great place for family picnics, a gentle walk and letting the children run off their excess steam.
