The City of Kelowna has acquired land on Casorso Road that will eventually be used as a park and a road extension.

The property is located immediately west of Casorso Elementary School and is currently occupied by a single-family residence. The residence on the property will be leased back to the owner pending development of the site.

“We have no design or development plans for the property yet, but we wanted to establish a neighbourhood park in this area due to the recent and proposed multi-family developments,” said City of Kelowna park and public spaces manager Terry Barton.

“The time frame for the design has yet to be determined, but the city has taken the first step in securing the land.”

Neighbourhood parks typically have playgrounds, community gardens, a common grass play field, trails, benches and landscaping.

The land acquisition will also allow a planned extension of Mission Springs Drive across Casorso Road to Barnes Avenue to the north.
