Tourism, including sports tourism, continues to be a major focus for our community. Repeat events like Granfondo; Canuck’s Young Stars and an international triathlon — now Challenge Penticton — are good indicators of that concept. Efforts are ongoing to establish a cycling precinct with neighbouring communities that would attract international cycling enthusiasts as well as events.
City council recently re-designated the area around the Three Blind Mice trail as park to ensure that as a cycling area going forward. Now thought needs to be given to expanding our playing fields as demand from many activities is greater than the current space.
