Client: City of Kelowna

Location: Kelowna, BC

Rutland residents and families have a new place to stroll, play and gather, with the latest enhancements now complete at Rutland Centennial Park. The Landscape Architecture team at Ecora has helped the City of Kelowna take a previously-undeveloped 2.5-hectare park space next to Rutland Centennial Hall and transform it into a community space that can be used year-round.

As part of Phase 3 improvements, the park now has a new garden space, pathways, bench seating, additional landscaping, and an expanded playground. Planting for a new multi-cultural garden is planned for this fall.

“The park is really coming together with these new features and additions,” said David James, Planner Specialist with the City. “Between the new sports field, accessible playground, and the most recent improvements such as pathways and benches, the park offers something for everyone.”

Enhancements and additions at Rutland Centennial Park have been underway since 2016, and each completed phase marks another step toward supporting a vibrant Rutland Town Centre and improving access to inclusive gathering spaces for all ages and abilities.
