Dog park moves in Kelowna

The temporary Rowcliffe dog park has changed as the Central Green project continues

The temporary dog park at Rowcliffe Park has been relocated to the area north of the parking lot. This will be the interim location until the next phase of Central Green amenities is constructed. This phase is scheduled for completion May 2019, and will be open to small and large dogs, according to the City of Kelowna in a news release.
