A Concept Plan is being prepared for Turner Park. Before the design is finalized, we want to hear how you currently use the park and how you'd like to use it in the future.

Project Background

The land for Turner Park, located at 6114 Turner Avenue, was acquired by the District of Peachland on March 30, 2021. The 3.34 hectare (8.26 acre) property was formerly owned by School District #23 and is one of the only remaining undeveloped properties able to accommodate athletic fields and other park amenities requiring flat land. The District of Peachland is looking to dispose of the lower site of the property fronting Princeton Avenue, which leaves a balance of 2.25 hectares (5.5 acres) available for parkland.

The Turner Park Concept Plan will build on the findings of the 2018 Parks and Recreation Master Plan and the 2020 Community Park Concept Plan: Sanderson, Heritage and Cousins Park to:

  • Assess community needs and desires for park space and amenities;
  • Identify the need for future amenities relative to use trends, population growth, and demographics;
  • Assess feasibility for park development;
  • Create concept drawings (30% working drawings); and
  • Provide recommendations for implementation including cost projections, phasing and potential funding sources.

Next Steps

Project Outcomes

The Turner Park Concept Plan will be a planning document to determine how the park should evolve or develop in the
  • Short term (2-5 years)
  • Medium term (6-10 years) and
  • Long term (11+ years).
The project team will deliver preliminary information to inform the District of Peachlandís 2022 Capital Plan by the Fall of 2021 with the final Turner Park Concept Plan delivered by December 2021.
