West Kelowna is reopening its skateboard park, pickleball and tennis courts on May 16 as provincial pandemic restrictions begin to ease.
“It’s exciting to enter this new phase and in time for the long weekend,” says Mayor Gord Milsom. “I strongly encourage you to get out and take advantage of the amenities that are open while following the existing social distancing protocols that have become our new normal.”
New signage describing the enhanced protocols for use is in place at all facilities. Measures such as no hand shaking, practicing good hygiene, maintaining a two-meter distance and staying home if you have symptoms are standard. Individual amenities may have additional protocols for users.

The city also released a video of parks and fleet operations manager Stacey Harding speaking about parks operations. You can watch that below.
