More changes coming to Kelowna's City Park waterfront

More changes to City Park

The City of Kelowna plans more improvements to its signature downtown park as part of a multi-year, multi-phase project.

The city says it expects to begin Phase 2 of improvements to City Park in the fall, a decade after the first phase.

The latest improvements would include making the pathway between the two washrooms smoother, wider and more accessible.

Logs would also be added to the shoreline along Hot Sands Beach to prevent further erosion.

Future phases, including a network of cycle-only pathways throughout the park, are expected to proceed as funding becomes available.

The city is also hoping to obtain grant funding from senior levels of government for construction of a pier, gathering circle and playground as well as pathway improvements throughout the park. Those projects could begin in 2023.

Residents are also being asked for feedback on overall designs at the park.

You are invited to comment on designs, share your favourite things to do at City Park, and pose questions and suggestions to the project team.
