KELOWNA - The City has recently completed acquiring the remaining 6.18 hectares of natural area park land along Lebanon and Cedar Creeks as part of the 37 ha Lebanon Creek Linear Park.
“Over the past 15 years, we’ve been working to assemble the land to ensure these natural parks are protected and offer connectivity to other park systems in the South Slopes,” said Urban Planning Manager Terry Barton.
Together with the Regional District and local developers, the next step is to establish a future trail system to provide more opportunities for residents to connect with nature and protect land for ecological reasons.
The City's Parks Master Plan envisions a linear trail at the headwaters of Lebanon Creek connecting to the larger John's Family Nature Conservancy Regional Park.
