All that remains: Beloved Kelowna water park vanishes

Construction is well under way at City Park Water Park

The City of Kelowna made quick work at Kelowna’s downtown water park.

The Ogopogo statue, and the rest of the park, is no more after the city started construction on the repairs from the damages that have had the park closed since 2017.

The plans to remove the Ogopogo to make the park more safe and flood resistant proved to be a somber realization for some of the parks’ fans.
