It will soon be easier to find a playground in West Kelowna.
The city has announced its plans to begin installing two new playgrounds at local parks — one at Shannon Woods Park in the Shannon Lake neighborhood and another at McIver Park in the Glenrosa neighborhood.
The city has said in a statement that the playgrounds will be equipped with swings, slides, monkey bars and other amenities.
While the city expects the playgrounds to be fully installed by mid-November, they’ve said that portions of the parks could be closed temporarily while construction gets underway.
According to the city’s website, it’s estimated that the playgrounds will cost $165,000.
