Regional district opens more parks following floods

Antler’s Beach Regional Park, along Okanagan Lake at the south end of Peachland is now open again.  It had been closed during the recent flooding.

As record water levels continue the gradual decline, Regional Parks staff is cleaning debris from some waterfront beaches.  As resources are available, sandbag and flood protection will be removed.

Each day, more sand is revealed at regional parks like Bertram Creek, Reiswig, Kaloya, Raymer Bay, Traders Cove and Gellatly Nut Farm.

In some other Regional Parks though, flood damage is more extensive and they remain closed:

  • Glen Canyon Regional Park
    • Acorn bridge downstream to the Gellatly Road parking area – closed as assessment and recovery of trails and infrastructure is underway
    • Constable Neil Bruce entrance upstream to the Covington Crescent entrance at Last Mountain Community Park – Closed

As a result of the extreme fire hazard, effective tonight until further notice, the Collens Hill Road access to Kalamoir Regional Park will be closed to all vehicles.  The park trails and waterfront area will remain open for hiking and cyclists.

Visitors are reminded that smoking and fires of any kind are not allowed in any Regional Park.
