KELOWNA - A sign of warmer spring weather, Knox Mountain Drive’s first lookout gate will open for vehicle traffic on Friday, March 11.
The upper portions of the road remain closed to vehicles until the weather permits a full opening. Park users are able to continue exploring the park on foot or bike. The upper portion of Knox Mountain Drive is anticipated to open within the next few weeks, after higher altitude temperatures are consistently above zero.
For the safety of all park users and wildlife, dog owners are reminded that dogs must be on-leash when in the park. An owner of a pet that comes into conflict with a wild animal is liable for a $345 fine under the Wildlife Act.
Residents are also reminded that smoking is prohibited in all natural areas.
Knox Mountain Drive is open to vehicles 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and noon to 9 p.m. on Sundays. Knox Mountain Park is open daily between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
