Westshore park gains major grooming

The Regional District of Central Okanagan is expanding a sports field at Westshore Estates Community Park

A North Westside park is being overhauled.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan is expanding a sports field at Westshore Estates Community Park.

“Tree removal and rough grading of the area will begin Tuesday,” said Bruce Smith, communications officer. “Westshore Estates Community Park will remain open to the public during construction.”

The project will include grading, seeding, and the installation of fencing, goal posts and backstops for a 5,000-square-metre soccer and slo-pitch playing field.

Funding for this project is provided by RDCO and the Ministry of Community, Development.

“Firewood from the tree removal portion of this work will be available free for residents and community members at two locations on either end of the park, near Bluebird Drive and Westshore Drive,” said Smith.
