Coldstream reopens Kal Beach

The Rotary Pier has reopened for summer.

The District of Coldstream has reopened Kalamalka Beach, along with other beaches, boat launches and tennis courts and skateboard parks.

According to a media release from the District of Coldstream, all beaches have now reopened including Kalamalka Beach, Tamarack Beach, Sovereign Park Beach, Kirkland Beach, Kalavista Beach, Pumphouse Beach and Westkal Lake Accesses. The parking lot at Kal Beach has also reopened.

Kinloch Boat Launch, Westkal Boat Launch and the Westkal parking have reopened.

With the exception of playground equipment, all park facilities are back up and running, including tennis courts and skateboard parks.

Washrooms at Kal Beach, Creekside and Sovereign Park will reopen tomorrow, May 23, with the Lavington Park washroom reopening May 25.

The District of Coldstream had come under criticism for having some of the strictest lockdowns in the Interior and even prohibited visits to the cemetery.

The district would like to remind the public to maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from others, practice sound hygiene, and that gatherings in excess of 50 people are prohibited.

The district says it may close its parks and public spaces if there is non-compliance.
