RDOS to acquire Christie Park in Okanagan Falls as province relinquishes control

The B.C. government introduced legislation today that will add more  than 550,000 hectares to the province’s parks and protected areas system,  Environment Minister Terry Lake announced Monday.

Part of the legislation involves Okangan Falls’ Christie  Memorial Park (three hectares), adjacent to the community of Okanagan Falls. The provincial park status will be cancelled and the lands transferred to the Regional District of the  Okanagan Similkameen for local park purposes.
