The City of Kelowna invites residents to review the preferred concept design that will guide future investment decisions for City Park over the course of the next decade.

An open house will be held Thursday, Sept. 11, near the Sails Plaza under the City tent from 4 to 7 p.m.

“We’re asking residents to drop by to speak to staff and see what’s being planned for the future of City Park,” said Terry Barton, Park and Building Planning Manager. “The updated plan sees the expansion of picnic areas, basketball courts, pathways, flexible event and aquatic facilities. Lawn bowling amenities and Veendam Way will also be retained.”

Staff needed to update the concept plan after a proposed a Visitor Centre in the park was removed. A workshop held in June with 47 community stakeholders helped shape the future of Downtown’s iconic waterfront park. The result of that work is now being presented to the community for feedback.
