Construction underway on phase 2 of Glenmore Recreation Park

The next phase of work on Glenmore Recreation Park has begun.

Phase 2 of the project will involve construction of two multi-use sports fields over the summer and it’s expected to be complete by the fall.

They likely won’t be available for use until fall 2020, however, as the new turf will need one season of growth to knit into the soil before it’s capable of supporting play.

This is just one phase of many that will be completed over the next decade as Glenmore Recreation Park slowly takes form.

The 11.5-acre park, located at the corner of Longhill Road and Valley Road, will accommodate a variety of uses once complete, including sports, community events and wellness-based recreation.

Population growth in the Glenmore area and Kelowna in general triggered the need for a park in the area.

“We know the community is eager for this park to be completed, which speaks to our city’s demand for sport and recreation facilities,” said Andrew Gibbs, project manager.

“Building out a park of this size is a significant undertaking, so we’re starting with addressing the basic needs first.”

Future phases of the park will include the construction of a playground, walking trails, a dog park, multi-use playing fields, sports courts and a community garden.
