The District of West Kelowna is looking for feedback regarding two proposed parks and recreation projects.

The District of West Kelowna is looking for feedback regarding two proposed parks and recreation projects.

Residents and stakeholders who attend the Winterfest festivities on Sunday, Dec. 4, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Mount Boucherie Community Centre, will be able to stop in at main reception in the Municipal Hall to learn more about the projects.

Those on hand will get information on the proposed development of future community amenities at Pritchard Park, including newly acquired property at 1595 Pritchard Drive, and Westlake Community Park and potential community space in the future elementary school on Rosewood Drive.

Staff will be available to provide information and answer questions regarding the creation of draft conceptual plans for both projects.

Feedback received during the public open house will be used to assist staff in the creation of the draft plans.

The District of West Kelowna and School District 23 have also created an online survey, seeking input into a proposed Neighbourhood Learning Centre within the new elementary school planned for Rosewood Drive.

Those unable to attend Winterfest can complete the survey online at www.districtofwestkelowna.ca under Events and Meetings.

The deadline to complete the survey is Dec. 20.
