Skaha Lake Waterfront
Trio Marine Group has proposed an expanded 100-slip marina that features day rentals, seasonal rentals and recreational pleasure craft like PWC, kayaks and paddle boards. Dock infrastructure upgrades are called for, and the bulk of the construction can be done locally in town with installation the only work to occur on the water.
A restaurant is included in the plans with operations slated for May to September, which could expand to year-round operations once demand is established.
One of the most exciting elements of the proposal includes a 110,000-square-foot water park featuring five large slides, a wave rider and splash pad items.
The proposal will be implemented in phases, starting with the marina in early 2016 and restaurant opening by summer of 2016. The water park phase is tentatively scheduled for spring 2017.
Accommodations will be made for additional parking, and in exchange for the commercial expansion, Trio has agreed to provide annual contributions to parkland - enabling the City to purchase additional property for park uses in the future.
Trio Marine Group will be moving forward with next steps according to the agreement. If you'd like to read more details about the proposals:
