Changing seasons: hurry hard to Stuart Park, Kasugai Gardens

March 04, 2014 - 4:06 PM

This has been the longest skating season ever for the Stuart Park ice rink, but all good things must come to an end.

Today is the last day for residents to enjoy outdoor public skating, as conditions mid-day are softening the ice.

However, tomorrow morning the rink will be turned into a temporary curling rink from 8:30 to 10 a.m. for residents who have always wanted to try their hand at throwing a curling stone down the ice. The Kelowna Curling Club will host this fun event to introduce people to a sport they might consider taking up at the downtown North End facility.

With winter transitioning to spring, Kasugai Gardens will open Wednesday for the season. The gardens will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Victoria Day weekend. Throughout the summer months the gardens will be open until 8 p.m. and after Labour Day weekend when the gardens again close at 5 p.m.

Kasugai Gardens provides a tranquil environment featuring traditional elements of a Japanese garden such as stone lanterns, pine trees and a waterfall and pond. The gardens were completed in 1987 to symbolize the friendship between Kelowna and Kasugai, Japan, sister cities since 1981.
