Wynndel is a quaint unincorporated village within the Creston Valley in beautiful Southern British Columbia. We have an active Community Centre offering regular activities and special events. Our Community Centre is the "heart" of Wynndel, freely available for community programming by interested volunteers. We also are proud of our Wynndel Arts Centre, located right behind the hall and can be used for a variety of activities and classes.
The residents and businesses have fire protection provided by the Wynndel Lakeview Fire Department. Wynndel has its own water system, supplied by the Wynndel Irrigation District. The community-owned watershed, with Duck Creek as the primary and Hubber Creek as a secondary source, is one of the few left in the province. The clean and progressive Canfor (WynnWood) Lumber Company is based in Wynndel and provides many jobs to Creston Valley residents. There is also a community church that holds services on Sundays.
