The district is asking Kelownians to provide their input by filling out an online questionnaire on the RDCO’s website from Dec. 2 to 15 or by attending an open house at 2363 Springfield Road on Wednesday, Dec. 4 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

As part of the public house, members of the park’s consultation team will be present to answer any questions that local residents have.

While a plan for the management of the park is being prepared by a consulting group, the district said public consultation is still needed to draft concept drawings for the 92-hectare protected area.

The regional district helps to protect over 2,100 hectares of park area across the Central Okanagan.
