West Kelowna seeks input on parks

The community is invited to stop by three West Kelowna parks next week to participate in open houses and provide thoughts and feedback on designs for improvements that are expected to begin later this year.

The first open house Aug. 1 will focus on Springer Park in Westbank Centre. The open house will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the park, which is located at the corner of Elliot and Bering Roads.

The second open house on Aug. 2 will occur between 12 and 2 p.m. at Paddlewheeler Park on Pritchard Drive.

The final input session will be held between 2 and 4 p.m. at Osprey Park on Green Bay Road.

Residents will be asked to provide their input regarding design concepts that were created using feedback from a community survey conducted in the beginning of July.

The district is planning upgrades to the aging Spring park as part of ongoing efforts to revitalize the Westbank Centre.

In keeping with the new Waterfront Plan, which was adopted in October, Paddlewheeler Park and Osprey Park are being improved this year—both parks are currently undeveloped lake accesses.
