The Stuart Park ice rink is now closed for the season and will re-open next winter. Skaters can still enjoy public skating at Rutland Arena, Capital News Centre and Memorial Area.
Phase two Construction set to start
Phase two will see Stuart Park extended north to the Water Street Boat Launch.
Construction is scheduled for 2014.
Fronting on 300 metres of prime waterfront in downtown Kelowna, Stuart Park promises to attract locals and visitors alike. The new park is designed to showcase quality urban waterfront park development, create a focal point for the City’s civic and Cultural District and provide environmental and fisheries benefits for the site.
Part of the Waterfront Parks Plan, Stuart Park provides a portion of the plan's goal to provide continuous public access to Kelowna's beautiful shoreline.
The park features adhere to nature-inspired concept plan and include:
Outdoor ice rink (call 250 469-8800, opt 4 for schedule updates)
- Lakeside promenade
- Civic plaza
- Public art
- Riparian enhancements
Phase one of Stuart Park was constructed August 2009 to June 2010. The $3.5 million project officially opened September 3, 2010. The parkland (located on Water Street, across the street from City Hall, between Queensway Avenue and the Kelowna Yacht Club building) was named after former City of Kelowna Mayor James (Jim) Stuart in recognition of his dedication to the community and his 31 years of service.
