The 0.4-acre property, which is located at 3676 Lakeshore Rd., will allow the city to expand Rotary Beach Park and get closer to creating continuous public beach access between Rotary and Gyro beaches.

“This property is one of the last significant obstacles for continued waterfront access between Boyce-Gyro Beach Park and Rotary Beach Park, so it’s an important acquisition at a reasonable cost for waterfront property,” Kelowna Mayor Colin Basran said in a press release.

There are now more than 10 kilometres of public beachfront property in Kelowna, including municipal, regional and provincial land holdings.

One of the last lakeshore properties standing in the way of free access between Rotary and Boyce-Gyro beaches has been bought by the City of Kelowna.

“This property is one of the last significant obstacles for continued waterfront access between Boyce-Gyro Beach Park and Rotary Beach Park, so it’s an important acquisition at a reasonable cost for waterfront property,” Mayor Colin Basran added.

The City’s Official Community Plan outlines the commitment to buy land for the community’s benefit when it is feasible to do so.
