Glenmore Recreation Phase 1
The City of Kelowna is planning a 10.5 hectare (26 acre) joint recreation community-level park in the Glenmore Valley that will serve both residents of Glenmore and the larger community. This future park site is located at the intersection of Longhill and Valley Roads.
The City has been successful in receiving authorization from the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) to proceed as a non-farm use within the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) and has recently completed the necessary land acquisitions.
Generally designed to serve a population of 45,000 people within five kilometers, recreation parks also serve city-wide and regional interests (see Parkland Acquisition Guidelines). In addition recreation parks, serve the adjacent residential population with community amenities such as walking and biking trails, picnic areas, play fields, skateboard parks, playgrounds and gardens.
Detail design of the first phase of park development will occur in 2016. The first phase will include the park road, parking and sports fields for rugby and cricket. The timing of construction is scheduled for 2017, subject to funding.
Detail Design of Phase 1 work to include:
- Play fields
- Perimeter walking trail
- Drainage improvements
- Site circulation & parking
