Second phase of Stuart Park finishes off Kelowna's waterfront facelift

A worker helps put the finishing touches on phase two of Jim Stuart Park opening Tuesday, June 30, 2015.

KELOWNA - Stuart Park, part two, is scheduled to open just in time for Canada Day.

Walkways and the new sidewalk fronting Water Street are complete and the lawn has been laid although the City of Kelowna says it will be fenced off for a few more weeks so it can get established.

A pair of large plant beds will be populated soon and a fire pit is being installed this fall.

The city will also construct a semi-circular chunk of sidewalk this fall to match the planned roundabout for Water Street and Doyle Avenue.

Opening of the second phase marks the last piece in the redevelopment of Kelowna’s waterfront. The first phase of Stuart Park was once occupied by a federal building while phase two occupies the site of the former yacht club.
