Ballou Park in North Glenmore is scheduled for an upgrade and expansion in 2022. Before the design is finalized, we want to hear how you currently use the park and how you'd like to use it in the future.

Proposed design

The proposed design includes an adventure playground, an entry plaza, perimeter pathway and fencing, a trail connection to Knox Mountain Park, site grading, irrigation, and landscaping.

How to participate & share feedback

Complete the online survey (link below) between June 16 and July 11, 2021.

Next steps

City staff and the design consultant reviewed all 272 survey responses and synthesized the data into themes from most commented on to least. The park construction is scheduled to begin Fall 2021 with anticipated completion in Summer 2022. Respondent feedback in addition to design best practices, amenities elsewhere in the neighbourhood and existing policy guidance for neighbourhood level parks will inform the final design of the park expansion.

    Hi there,

     

    Thanks for you inquiry.  There are no plans to include a splash pad at Ballou Park.

    I am very interested to know why the North Glenmore park at Valley Rd is SO FAR FROM COMPLETION, and the only park in our area was leased out years ago to a "so called" orchardist..so in our area there is NO activity park..Yet its in the city budget to add to an already existing park!

    Hi there,

     

    Thanks for your question.  The City of Kelowna purchased ALR (Agricultural Land Reserve) land for the development of Glenmore Recreation Park. The ALC (Agricultural Land Commission) granted permission to alter the use of that land from agriculture to recreation on the condition that the parkland at 500 Valley Rd be returned to agriculture for farming.

     

    I hope this answers your question. 

     

    Thanks,

    Amy Nyhof
