Kerry Park Phase 1 improvements nearing completion
Construction of the first phase of Kerry Park is now substantially complete. Work began in May, where the area around the new Tourism Kelowna building was under construction to accommodate sidewalks, furniture, landscaping, light fixtures and the promenade.
Remaining improvements for Phase 1 include pedestrian lighting and seating, which are scheduled for October.
“Extending the waterfront promenade and landscaping the area of the old ferry landing is a great way to improve public use of the old parking lot that was on the waterfront at the end of Queensway Avenue,” said Andrew Gibbs, Senior Project Manager. “The remainder of Kerry Park is expected to be updated in the future as funding is available.”
As part of the work, and until construction on the proposed Westcorp development breaks ground, there will be a temporary short-term paid parking lot available at the end of Queensway Avenue.
Hourly parking will apply seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Visit kelowna.ca/parking for more information.
