New skate park in West Kelowna formally opens Saturday

Residents in West Kelowna are celebrating the official opening of a new skate park in the city.

A kickoff event is set for Saturday between 1:30 and 4 pm to officially welcome the park to the community.

Located at 3737 Old Okanagan Highway, the park features a bowl, rails and so much more. Skaters on hand today will see a DJ, games and numerous competitions.

An official ribbon-cutting for the park took place on Sept. 21, 2021, though there was no shindig due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With protocols now eased, the City of West Kelowna is making up for the lost time.

Food trucks will also be on-site today. No pre-registration is required to attend the event.
