KELOWNA - The lower portion of Glen Canyon Regional Park off Gellatly Road in West Kelowna will be closed starting September 2nd for up to eight weeks for trail upgrades. (See map)
The trails between Gellatly Road and the new bridge span upstream will remain closed until approximately the end of October. Please obey any signage and barricades directing visitors around the closed area. Other areas of the park will still be open and accessible, including the loop trail that links with the District of West Kelowna’s Westbank Centre Park, just off May Street.
Much of this work is being funded as part of a grant through the Provincial Government’s Community Recreation Program Trails to Health project. In addition to trail improvements, information and signage, the work will see existing staircases and crib steps replaced and a new parking area established off Gellatly Road. As a part of this project and a recent parkland management agreement with the District of West Kelowna, the Regional District will upgrade trails through a portion of West Kelowna municipal parkland that will be maintained as a part of Glen Canyon Regional Park trail system.
The Regional District thanks park users for their patience and understanding while this park access enhancement work is done.
