New Spots for Your Next Stop

By Tourism Radium on July 12, 2021

A wave of new businesses and amenities have come to Radium as the Columbia Valley begins to recover from the pandemic.

“The vibrancy of the Village has continued to shine throughout the past year,” says Jessica Fairhart, Executive Director for Tourism Radium.  “We look forward to summer 2021 and welcoming visitors back to explore Radium and the Columbia Valley.”

Food & Beverage

Radium Hot Springs has many great dining options. Main Street has welcomed a few more!

the SNACK BAR


Conveniently located in the middle of Main Street West, the SNACK BAR offers an extensive poutine menu, hot dogs and brats, and a few other grab-and-go items.  

Radium Brewing


The highly-anticipated brewery opened its door on June 12. Serving six beers daily, it is a gathering place for friends and community.

Mama Bear Bakery


Radium is in for a treat with this bakery, offering classic and unique cookies (lemon ricotta, anyone?), seasonal treats, and other organic goods. Vina Benn, the Mama Bear, is still selling at the Market on Main on Fridays in Radium and the Wednesday market at the Agri-Park, along with made-to-order items.  

Businesses

Columbia Valley Escape Rooms


Three themed rooms, engaging storylines, and fun and challenging experiences for all ages! Columbia Valley Escape Rooms recently relocated from their Fairmont location to a space in Radium Plaza.

Blooming World


With an original location in downtown Invermere, Blooming World Cannabis Radium offers a large selection of high-quality cannabis products with a knowledgeable team. They are located on Main Street West next to the SNACK BAR.

Art

Bighorns


Although a few months old, the Bighorns art that welcomes people to Radium and the Columbia Valley is worth mentioning! The prominent piece of art is three-dimensional with lighting as a key component and designed to be visible from all entryways to Radium.

Woodcarver Park


Recently announced and in the fundraising phase, preliminary plans for the park include greenspace, play areas for kids, and a pavilion shaped as a wizard hat—to honour Rolf Heer, legendary Radium woodcarver.

Amenities

Pickleball courts
The rink, centrally located in Legend’s Field, has been outfitted with two pickleball courts. They’re free to use and first-come, first-served.

Splash park
Construction has begun in Legend’s Field for a splash park in the northwest corner. It’ll be a great addition to the family-friendly park area when it opens in July!

Disc golf
Plans for a 9-hole disc golf course around Sinclair Creek are underway with construction beginning in July.

“Radium has a lot to celebrate with new businesses, park amenities, and old favourite events such as Market on Main for both residents and visitors to enjoy,” concludes Fairhart.
