FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 01, 2017
In the interest of public safety, the City of West Kelowna has closed the Gellatly Walkway until further notice due to the historically-high Okanagan Lake level.
Portions of the waterfront walkway have washed out making it unsafe for pedestrians and cyclists.
The City will continue to monitor the walkway and the impacts of increasing lake levels and will begin restoration of this popular amenity once levels begin to subside. The nearby CNR Wharf remains open at this time.
The City’s two boat launches, Gellatly Boat Launch and Casa Loma Boat Launch, remain closed and residents and visitors are reminded not to tamper with barricades or flood protection installations.
