Part of regional park in West Kelowna to close for upgrades

The Central Okanagan Regional District has announced that lower portion of Glen Canyon Regional Park, off Gellatly Road in West Kelowna, will be closed starting next week for up to eight weeks for trail upgrades.

As of Monday, Sept. 2, the trails between Gellatly Road and the new bridge span upstream will be closed until the end of October.

Anyone walking in the area is asked to obey any signs posted and barricades directing visitors around the closed area.  Other areas of the park will remain open and accessible, including the loop trail that links with the District of West Kelowna’s Westbank Centre Park, just off May Street.

According to CORD, much of the work is being funded through a grant from the province's Community Recreation Program Trails to Health project.

In addition to trail improvements, information and new signs, the work will also see existing staircases and crib steps replaced and a new parking area established off Gellatly Road.

As a part of the project and a recent parkland management agreement with the West Kelowna, the regional district will upgrade trails through a portion of West Kelowna municipal parkland that will be maintained as a part of the Glen Canyon Regional Park trail system.
