City of West Kelowna announces new neighborhood obstacle course

The project is anticipated to be complete by mid-November.

You can now train for the Tough Mudder a little closer to home if you live on the westside of Okanagan Lake.

The City of West Kelowna announced Tuesday that they’ve begun to install a new obstacle course in Vineyard Park in the South Boucherie neighborhood.

After installation, the course will feature an A-frame cargo net, an angled balance beam, a high step cargo net, a peg bridge and rope climb for obstacle enthusiasts.

Despite the excitement, this isn’t the first time an obstacle course has been installed in the area for Okanagan residents. A company called Kelowna Wibit partnered with the City of Kelowna in 2014 to lease a portion of Okanagan lake in front of City Park Beach for a floating aquatic park.

Work on the $60,000 project is expected to be complete by mid-November.
