Lake Country launch reopens

Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park in Lake Country reopened Saturday.

The site had been closed since May 9 while crews removed the old main concrete boat launch and replaced it with a new, slightly longer one.

“We appreciate the patience area residents and launch users have shown while the park was closed for the work,” said Bruce Smith, Central Okanagan Regional District communications co-ordinator.

“We’re happy to get this major improvement completed and the park open for boaters again, especially with the long Victoria Day weekend approaching.”

Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park provides shelter and refuge for boaters during storms, poor weather conditions or other emergency needs at any time.

Between May 1st and September 30th, the gate to the park, located along Okanagan Centre Road West in Lake Country is locked daily from 10:00 pm to 5:00 am.
