Vegetation Pruning along the Mission Creek Greenway

March 06, 2015 - 9:43 AM

KELOWNA - From March 9th through the 31st, sections of the Mission Creek Greenway will be periodically closed for pruning and vegetation maintenance.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and asks for their safety that Greenway users please obey any barricades, signs and flag people and stay out of any closed areas.

The trail along the north side of Mission Creek between Lakeshore Road and Gordon Drive will be completely closed while crews and equipment are at work.  In addition, temporary closures of the trail can be expected upstream from the Casorso Road Bridge.

A contractor for the Ministry of the Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations, Public Safety and Protection Branch will be pruning and removing brush and hazardous trees to allow visual inspections of the dike during periods of highs flows in Mission Creek while ensuring dike integrity.

Residents are encouraged to use other areas of the Greenway while this work is underway. 

For more information on the trail closure, please contact the Regional Parks office at 469-6232.

For information on the dike vegetation maintenance, please call the Ministry of the Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations at 250-490-7876.
