Close eye on City Park

Kelowna RCMP are keeping a close eye on City Park after a rash of incidents over the last two weeks.

A handful of mothers are left fearing for the safety of their children after three separate incidents at the park last week.

One mother says she watched as a man inappropriately touched himself while staring at her daughter on May 25. Another says death threats were uttered to her children and another said she was harassed by a woman holding drug paraphernalia who tried to touch her baby.

Kelowna RCMP Cpl. Tanya Carroll said they have a large police presence in the park and will continue to patrol it.

“We have the bike patrol going and our downtown enforcement is always in the park,” she said.

Enhanced foot patrols also make their way through the parks in the summer months.

“We can’t investigate something we aren’t notified about,” said Carroll. “We need to hear from those involved and we can investigate.”
