Public access to Kelowna’s City Park will be restricted during the B.C. Day long weekend to accommodate the 2011 Center of Gravity ticketed event.

From Thursday, July 28, to Monday, Aug., 1, areas of City Park affected by the event closure include beach volleyball courts, basketball courts, sports fields and parking lots.

For safety reasons, partial closures of the City Park parking lot will be in effect on July 26 and 27, as well as Aug. 1 for event set up and take down. Alternate parking will be available at the Chapman Parkade on Lawrence Avenue.

Most facilities at City Park remain open to the public during the weekend, including a portion of Hot Sands Beach, the playground, water park, tennis courts, skateboard park, washrooms and the Lawn Bowling Club.

The lakefront promenade within the event site will be closed to the public. Pedestrians are asked to detour around the event along the walkway which extends from the park tunnel along the south end of the park.
