“Upon completion, Coldstream Station will provide a central gathering area with access to the Okanagan Rail Trail – complete with an event plaza, public washrooms, public parking, and visitor information,” said the district in a release.

The area will be closed to the public for the duration of the construction. It is located just south of the Alpine Centre.
