Visitors will also be treated to tours of the farm house by staff on the weekend. All donations from the tours will go towards preservation efforts of the park.

RDCO reminds Okanaganites that there will be no general parking allowed along Whiteworth Road during Saturday and Sunday evening. Visitors can park at 3700 Carrington Court off Gellatly Road during the weekend where they’ll be able to catch a shuttle every 15 minutes to the farm.
