Mayor Doug Findlater, on behalf of West Kelowna Council, presented awards to the community’s Most Beautiful Contest winners, part of the District of West Kelowna’s participation in the Communities in Bloom competition.
“Your hard work to create these beautiful spaces is to be commended,” Mayor Findlater said to the winners. ”The District of West Kelowna is proud to recognize the special efforts that our residents take to make this such a beautiful community.”

- Business Garden The Cove
- Honourable Mentions:
* Residential Large Garden Jean & Paul Saygnavong
