Linear Park Master Plan
In November 2009, Kelowna’s City Council approved the Linear Park Master Plan as an overall guide for the linear park development within the city. This essential reference document also helped to inform the Kelowna 2030 Official Community Plan adopted by Council in May 2011.
The Linear Park Master Plan consists of several components including:
The City has been working diligently to implement the recommendations identified in the Linear Park Master Plan as one of the top priorities within the Parks and Recreation system. Current linear park projects are listed below. Numbers in parentheses correspond with the designated trail number in the Linear Park Master Plan.
- Top of Ravine Trail, part of the Bellevue Creek Greenway (8), connects the Ponds Neighbourhood system at the north of Gordon Drive with a community park as well as the site of a future school and a network of existing trails.
- Stuart Park Phase 2 Waterfront Walkway (122) - the existing promenade at Stuart Park will be extended to the Water Street boat launch. Construction is anticipated to be in conjunction with the building of the new Kelowna Yacht Clubhouse. Groundbreaking is anticipated in 2014.
