DistrictsEdit

Revelstoke is split up into 6 main districts:

Arrow HeightsEdit

Arrow Heights is in the complete opposite side of town as the main entrance area, and as such does not have a very high population. Located at the foot of Mt. Mackenzie (home of Revelstoke Mountain Resort), most of the houses are very luxurious, and are naturally very expensive, some of which pricing over $1 million! Some places to note are Arrow Heights Elementary School, the Queen Victoria Hospital, Revelstoke Airport (YRV) and the Ski Resort.

This area of town is mostly houses. There is an elementary school (Columbia Park Elementary) right around the middle beside a hill. It has been the largest (by population) elementary school in Revelstoke since the shut-down of Big Eddy School.

As the name implies, Downtown Revelstoke is, well, downtown. The downtown area consists mostly of shops and restaurants, and few houses. Most nights in the summer, live music is played on the bandstand on Mackenzie Avenue. Also, the farmer's market is held here in the summer every Saturday.
