North Okanagan parks get funding

The centennial of B.C. Parks is being celebrated across the province and that has resulted in funding going into two local parks.

The Sovereign lake Nordic Club is receiving $15,000 to upgrade and install signage in Silver Star Mountain Provincial Park.

Friends of Fintry Park is getting $19,000 to restore staff quarters at Fintry Provincial Park.

“Community Legacy funding looks to the future and the improvements we will continue to make - and it celebrates the past 100 years by recognizing the key role community groups have played in making our provincial parks the treasures they are today,” said Environment Minister Terry Lake.
