The District of West Kelowna is creating a plan that will recommend upgrades at Memorial Park, located adjacent to Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre, in Westbank Centre. The Memorial Park Plan will focus specifically on improving existing outdoor spaces at Memorial Park and enhancing Music in the Park programming.
As part of the planning process, the municipality asked the community to participate in a short survey to share impressions of the park today and ideas for the future. The Memorial Park Plan Ideas Survey, closed March 6, 2013.
The survey is now closed.
Thank you for participating.
