The upper Westlake Road parking area at Rose Valley Regional Park in West Kelowna will be closed until the end of September.
The closure is needed as Regional Parks staff removes and upgrades fencing and other amenities along with adjoining trails around the information kiosk area. During this time, park visitors are asked to stay out of the closed parking area as it will be used for storing supplies and equipment.
While the upper parking lot is closed, visitors are encouraged to use the newly upgraded parking lot and washroom facility at Westlake Road and Starlight Crescent.
This work is being funded through a grant from the Community Recreation Program Trails to Health project. Over the past year, this project has seen upgrading and development of approximately eight kilometers of trails in three large looped sections of Rose Valley Regional Park, the removal of hazard trees and the installation of six new lookouts and benches.
In addition way-finding trail maps and markers have been installed and a new information kiosk and washroom were built at the lower parking area off Westlake Road and Starlight Crescent.
