Open House to be held for Okanagan Heritage Pier - A new landmark in Peachland will provide vistas and recreation while educating people about Okanagan Valley heritage On Wednesday, April 5, the Peachland Pier Group will be holding an informational open house in Kelowna concerning a landmark pier to be constructed in Peachland. The open house will be held at the Kelowna Art Gallery from 5 to 6:30 PM, and the public is invited. Representatives will be on hand to provide information and a short video about the nearly 400-foot, wheelchair-accessible pier, which will serve as a heritage site for the region, including interpretive plaques telling some of the many stories relating to Okanagan Valley people, history, and natural environment. The pier will also provide people with opportunities for strolling, taking in spectacular views of the lake, and fishing. It will be a place for people interested in nature and heritage, for families with children and grandchildren, and for people in wheelchairs, or with other mobility challenges. It will be an attraction for tourists. So far, about $175,000 has been raised for the project, which has an estimated cost of $400,000. Construction is expected to begin in the fall of this year. Please come to hear about this exciting project.
