Local residents are invited to join the Regional District of Central Okanagan as it begins creating management plans for two of its recently acquired regional parks.

Goats Peak Regional Park encompasses 52-hectares overlooking Okanagan Lake in West Kelowna, while the Regional District and Westbank First Nation co-manage the 540-hectare Black Mountain / sntsk‘il’ntən (sinch-keel-en-tin) Regional Park along the eastern slopes of Kelowna.

Local consultants are hosting open houses this month for everyone interested in parkland conservation and compatible outdoor recreation for each of these new parks.

Learn about each of these unique parks and the management plan project.  Stop by to hear about some of the unique opportunities and challenges that planners expect through the process and share your thoughts about what the plans will need to consider.
