Vehicle access to seven RDCO regional parks opens this weekend

Regional park gates open

Here’s a sure sign of spring in the Central Okanagan.

Vehicle access for seven of the 30 regional parks operated by the Regional District of Central Okanagan will reopen after being closed since last fall.

Over the winter, gates restrict access to roadways and parking lots at Kalamoir Regional Park, Bertram Creek, Kopje, Raymer Bay, Traders Cove, the Brown Road access to Glen Canyon, and the Field Road access to Scenic Canyon. All the parks are open to foot traffic year-round.

The McCulloch Road gate to Scenic Canyon is closed year-round with foot access only from that entrance.

The hours of operation for the regional parks in the RDCO are as follows:

  • January 1 to February 28-6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • March 1 to May 31-6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
  • June 1 to August 31-6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
  • September 1 to October 14-6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
  • October 15 to December 31-6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
