The Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) is hosting its annual competition to recognize Canada’s truly special places, and Stuart Park is in the running to win.
“Stuart Park was just nominated on Friday so our nomination came later than some other spaces,” said Kelowna Mayor Colin Basran. “But what we have with Stuart Park is truly unique and we’re asking residents to vote and show their pride for our city.”
Local residents are encouraged to vote for Stuart Park in the Public Space category. There are 11 other public spaces in the running, including Grizzly Plaza in Revelstoke B.C. and Historic Downtown Amherstburg in Ontario.
“With the recent expansion of Stuart Park, it is truly a jewel on our downtown waterfront,” Basran proclaimed.
The contest runs until Sept. 24, and you can vote for Stuart Park at the website bestplaceincanada.ca.
