Residents are being asked to share their ideas on the new concept plan for City Park.
Kelowna’s first public park is over 100 years old and the redevelopment is seen as a pivotal investment into the revitalization of downtown.
“The timing for the development of the concept plan is ideal,” said Terry Barton, Parks and Public Places Manager.
“This process builds on the Downtown Plan and related projects such as the reconstruction of Bernard Avenue, Phase 2 of Stuart Park, and the public pier to mention a few. Input from residents will help prioritize improvements for City Park and we can determine what the financial considerations are for now and into the next 10 years.”
Council has already approved the future site of the new Visitor Information Centre on Abbott Street and landscape architect consultant Perry and Associates has been working with community stakeholders on a concept plan for the park.
Residents are invited to provide ideas through an online community engagement platform. Ideas and design sketches will be shown to generate community discussion with the aim of an iterative process as the design team works towards a preferred direction over the next few months.
Over the next six weeks residents can view the preliminary concept plan and provide input by visiting the project website.
The full plan will be presented at an open house later this year.
