Kelowna’s City Park getting a facelift

Construction will enhance the beach, walkways, and amenities

Upgrades to Kelowna’s popular City Park start Feb. 14.

Construction will enhance the beach, walkways, and amenities.

“The existing path between the Hot Sands washroom and Cold Sands washroom will be removed and a new, wider path with concrete surface, lighting and park furniture,” said Todd DeGruchy, senior project manager. “Residents and visitors will benefit from these new improvements that will improve the foreshore and create an overall better experience.”

A pedestrian and bike detour will be in place throughout the park. Foreshore protection work will also be completed to help manage sand depletion by placing anchored logs and plantings to help mitigate future erosion. Additional turf, plantings, and log edging will be added at the beach interface.

The work is scheduled to be completed in June.

More information is available on the City of Kelowna website.
