Safe harbour to remain open

Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park and boat launch will remain open after the Thanksgiving long weekend.

Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park and boat launch will remain open after the Thanksgiving long weekend.

It was earlier anticipated that construction work would require the closure of the park along Okanagan Centre Road West, after the holiday weekend.

While the park will now remain open, boaters and other park users should be aware that construction equipment and crews will be working in and around the harbour area as they continue to frame and deck the new viewing/recreational pier and courtesy dock alongside the main boat launch in Lake Country.

Last month, the Ministry of Environment approved an extension requested by the Regional District to allow construction to continue beyond the September 30th deadline in advance of shoreline fish spawning.  On-site environmental monitoring of the fish habitat will continue during the construction extension for the presence of shore spawning Kokanee salmon.

It’s anticipated the remaining work will be complete by the end of the month.
