The Regional District of North Okanagan has started working on enhancing a portion of the Okanagan Rail Trail at the 3.7 kilometre mark.
Additional funding has been received from a private donation for the improvement and restoration of select areas along the Okanagan Rail Trail in Kelowna, Lake Country and the RDNO.
Improvements will include the addition of trail history and nature interpretation, and are meant to increase the natural beauty of the trail along with user experiences that connects them with both nature and the history behind the trail.
“As a part of these upgrades, we will be completing environmental protection work, and enhancing a select area adjacent to the trail,” said Keith Pinkoski, manager of parks. “We kindly ask trail users to obey all construction signage and flaggers that may be present on site.”
Equipment has been brought on site, and work is expected to last two to three weeks.
Crews will take all necessary steps to avoid disrupting the use of the Okanagan Rail Trail while work is being completed.
