Lights were installed at Lower Boucherie Ball Diamond and the Rosewood Soccer and Football Field in the summer and fall of 2017 to extend the daily use of these popular athletic facilities in the spring and fall.
Thanks to funding contributions under the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, the improvements were constructed at least two years sooner than originally intended.
The total project cost was $1,045,902. The City of West Kelowna is extremely grateful to the Government of Canada for providing $337,70 toward the project.
Lower Boucherie and Rosewood Sports Fields are extremely well used community amenities and are now listed among the hundreds of legacy community facilities that have been built or improved in 2016 and 2017 in celebration and recognition of the nation's 150th Year of Confederation.
In 2016, the Annette Beaudreau Amphitheater and adjacent Skate Park in Memorial Park in the City of West Kelowna were also upgraded under the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program. The improvements cost $607,920 and received more than $9,000 in community donations and a generous contribution of $265,437 from the Government of Canada.
