Visitors to one of the largest regional parks in the Central Okanagan have a new option for parking and accessing trails.

With approvals and the assistance of the District of West Kelowna, a second, larger parking lot is now open at Rose Valley Regional Park.

The new parking area is located on Westlake Road, across from Starlight Crescent, and offers off road parking for more than 20 vehicles.

"The new lot  provides access to trails at the southernmost portion of the 250 hectare regional park and will certainly help ease periodic overcrowding at the other main trail access point," said Regional District communications officer Bruce Smith.

"Plans call for construction of a kiosk at the new parking area trailhead that will have map and trail information as well as outlining some of the features visitors will experience in the park."

As with other gated regional park parking areas, the new lot is being opened each morning and closed each evening. It's subject to the regional parking and towing policy, which is clearly posted at the entrance to the new lot.
