Kelowna’s Boyce-Gyro Park

Feedback: Readers see both sides on Gyro sale

Kelowna readers react to the sale of some land near popular Boyce Gyro Park

Our story about the sale of some land adjacent to Boyce-Gyro Park being sold to a developer (Page A3) was first posted on kelownacapnews.com and on our Facebook page where readers chimed in on the move by Kelowna.

Merry Erin Edwards:

Kelowna city council doesn’t care about the average citizen. Beach access is difficult enough for people who don’t own lakefront property, and now this. Money is the only thing that matters here.

Stephen Brown:

What a surprise Kelowna bending over for the rich. That’s why so many docks have been rebuilt quickly without proper steps to get across said docks or access to lakefront that’s being blocked by entitled rich people. I hope the greed you take from the sale will actually go towards lakefront access for all Kelowna people, not just the rich.

Barry Bowman:

I wonder do people even read the complete story before posting? By some of the comments. I don’t think so.

The park isn’t going anywhere people. Read the article. It’s a good deal.
