Sept. 16 2019 : KILLINEY BOAT LAUNCH NOW OPEN
With the busy boating season behind us, two Regional District facilities will be closed while undergoing repairs this month.
First up, starting on Monday, September 9th through next Friday afternoon, September 13th, the boat launch and dock at Killiney Beach Community Park at the end of Hodges Road will be closed. The rest of the North Westside waterfront park will remain open. As an alternative, boaters may wish to consider whether the small Fintry Community Park Access #1 boat launch is suitable for use at the end of Fintry Delta Road.
And from Monday, September 16th to the afternoon of Friday September 20th, the main boat launch and courtesy dock will be closed at Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park along Okanagan Centre Road West in Lake Country. During this period, if suitable, boaters may wish to use the smaller launch area to the south of the main facility.
The work at each of these RDCO park boat launches will stabilize the concrete pads that were undermined during the record high level of Okanagan Lake in spring 2017 and during freshet last year.
In the coming weeks, boaters should be aware that a portion of the courtesy dock will be replaced at Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park. This work is also expected to require the facility’s closure.
The Regional District apologizes for any inconvenience caused by these projects and appreciates the understanding and support of the boating community.
