Regional Parks Guide for 2011 now available

New regional parks guide is your 4-1-1 for activities in local parks.

Parks Guide 2011—your 4-1-1 on regional parks; they’re close, they’re large and they’re natural!

Each is an apt description for any of your 28 regional parks in the Central Okanagan.

And the new ‘Your Guide to Regional Parks 2011’ outlines everything you need to enjoy them.

“The eight-page colour foldout brochure has the low down on all our activities and programs for the rest of the year,” said regional district spokesman Bruce Smith.

“From upcoming exhibits at the EECO, to our handy ‘Year at a Glance,’ to the ever popular map showing each regional park, its location and some of the features and amenities, you’ll find when you get there, the guide is your one stop information source for everything in our regional parks system.”

Smith said with Spring Break fast approaching, parents may want to check out the dates, times and registration prices for this year’s Nature Detectives Spring Break Camps.

And it’s not too early to start thinking about this year’s Junior Naturalists Day Camp program during the summer in July and August.

“The Regional Parks guide also has the details about our returning and expanded Tracks Walking Club program. It will run for 12 consecutive weeks this spring and for an additional five weeks in the fall.

“You’ll also find information about the popular weekly hike program during June and July, visiting eight different regional parks and this spring’s ‘Go Fish’ program, giving youngsters a chance to learn the sport of angling close to their own backyard.”

The 2011 Regional Parks Guide is available anytime online by visiting

Or you can pick up a copy at many locations across the Central Okanagan including the Regional District office, 1450 KLO Rd., the Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan in Mission Creek Regional Park.

You may also find the guide at any local government office, recreation centre or tourist and information offices across the Central Okanagan.

For more information about any regional parks programs,  visit or call the EECO at 250-469-6140.
