With cooler temperatures here and snow about to become a regular part of the weather forecast, the City of Kelowna has closed Knox Mountain Drive for the winter.
The city says it closes Knox Mountain Drive annually due to poor driving conditions, as precipitation and colder temperatures cause the roadway to become increasingly hazardous. Effective today, Friday, November 9th, the road will remain closed to public vehicles until the spring.

Park users are reminded to keep their dogs on-leash, except once inside the off-leash dog park south of Knox Mountain Drive.
