KELOWNA - On Monday, June 20, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., utility locates and geotechnical drilling and exploration will occur in Kerry Park.
This work is necessary to obtain information about the physical properties of the soil and condition of the retaining wall for detailed design and cost estimates for the design of a future redevelopment of Kerry Park.
Minor disruptions will occur in the Kerry Park and Queensway areas, and the public is asked to be aware and respectful of contractors in the park, promenade and parking areas.
A concept plan for Kerry Park was presented at a public open house in June 2012 and presented to Council in April 2013. The timing of the park redevelopment is subject to funding.
Key features of the Kerry Park concept plan include:
Continuity along the waterfront with respect to pedestrian and bicyclist mobility;
Upgraded infrastructure for programmed events and activities; and
Coordination of the waterfront walkway with the entrance to the new pier and marina.
