Boaters and other users of Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park are advised of an upcoming extended closure.

The gates to the park and boat launch along Okanagan Centre Road West in Lake Country will be closed from 10 p.m. July 13 until 9 a.m. July 14. Normally, gates are closed from approximately 10 p.m. until 5:00 a.m.

The delayed park opening is required as Okanagan Centre Road West will be temporarily closed between 7 and 9 a.m. July 14 during the RBC Gran Fondo Kelowna cycling event.

“It’s anticipated that Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park will be available for use as soon as possible after 9 a.m., once the road is open and Gran Fondo participants have passed through this area,” said Bruce Smith, with the Regional District of Central Okanagan.
