The city is seeking feedback on improvements to the Rutland Recreation Park

The City of Kelowna is looking to hear from residents on improvements for the Rutland Recreation Park and bike facilities in the neighbourhood.

The city says the recreation park is due for enhancements and the feedback received from residents will help finalize plans, including the addition of a new artificial turf field and two transportation improvement projects.

“Working with residents in their local areas is crucial for designing and creating active spaces that meet the needs of the community,” said Keith Pinkoski, planner specialist

“The proposed improvements will enhance the park’s use; this is the opportunity to share input on these plans to make sure Rutland Recreation Park remains a vibrant and inviting space for everyone.”

Residents can provide feedback in a couple of ways.

The city is hosting an open house in the park from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday, June 22.

Surveys are available through this link. Residents can provide input and feedback on three topics: sports fields, Hartman Road bike facility improvements and Rutland’s new neighbourhood bikeway.

The city says the field enhancements in Rutland are part of a vision to create safe and accessible spaces for all residents.

“With planned, or existing artificial turf fields in Rutland, Mission, Glenmore and Central Kelowna, this component of the Building a Stronger Kelowna initiative addresses the need for all season amenities across all areas of the city,” said Robert Parlane, parks and buildings planning manager, City of Kelowna.

“The set up planned for Rutland with artificial turf and lighting helps to maximize capacity on these fields with nearly three times more playing time annually over traditional grass fields.”

Additionally, the Rutland Neighbourhood Bikeway will provide a direct connection to Rutland Recreation Park, Rutland Secondary School and the Okanagan Rail Trail (via the extension on Houghton Avenue).

New bike facilities are also proposed for Hartman Road.

Engagement on all three projects is open until July 7.
