Black Mountain: Meet your neighbours

Residents and neighbours in the area of Birkdale Park are invited to come celebrate the start of spring in Black Mountain’s newest community park on Black Mountain Drive on Sunday, May 6.

Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray will bring greetings from the City of Kelowna during a special community gathering hosted by Melcor Developments this Sunday, starting at 12:30 p.m. Food, and refreshments will be available, as well as fun activities for the whole family to enjoy including a bouncy castle, putting contest, a chili cook-off and a bedazzle bird house.

Located at the intersection of Black Mountain Drive and Birkdale Avenue, Birkdale Park includes several sustainable features such as a minimal irrigated lawn area with low water-use native grassland, rainwater runoff catchment areas, and the use of durable, natural materials. Features of the park also include an adventure playground, pathway, tennis court and lookouts/seating areas with panoramic views of Black Mountain.
