Okanagan beach becoming junkyard, says council
Lake Country's city council has promised to clean up a cluttered 2km stretch of waterfront.
Known as the Okanagan Centre Greenspace, the trail runs west of Winfield along Okanagan Lake.
It's currently filled with boats, sheds and docks that belong to or were built by private residents.
But city council wants to make the space public friendly again.
The previous council already removed 13 docks from the area, but seven remain.
Now all private docks built along the greenspace will be torn down and all unclaimed furniture, boats and equipment taken away. The city has given owners until February 2013 to claim their stuff, but not everyone thinks the move is a fair one.
Lisa Cameron is the Okanagan Center Representative for Lake Country City Council.
She took Daybreak's Gillianne Richards for walk along the waterfront to show her some examples of the mess, starting with a "colorful" place for a picnic.
