KELOWNA - You'll be able to drive up Knox Mountain in Kelowna tomorrow.

Some rainfall and cooler temperatures mean the fire hazard is no longer extreme, so the road up Knox Mountain will be open to vehicles tomorrow, Sept. 23, according to a City of Kelowna media release.

Visitors to Knox Mountain are asked to remain vigilant despite the low fire hazard. Communications supervisor Tom Wilson asks people to report any activity that could put the public at risk.

Wilson says because Knox Mountain Drive has been closed to vehicle traffic for most of the season, drivers must be cautious of bikers and hikers on the road and stay within the 30 km/h speed limit.

Monday to Saturday Knox Mountain Drive is open to vehicles 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., and 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays. Knox Mountain Park is open daily between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Campfires and barbecues are not permitted in City parks with the exception of barbecues on beaches, according to the release. Smoking is prohibited in all parks and public spaces.
