Penticton’s Parks Department manages a large variety of trees, shrubs, turf, perennials and annuals with varying water requirements. In landscaped areas, indigenous and drought-resistant material is used, mulches are applied, and water-efficient drip irrigation systems are in place. Much of the City’s parkland irrigation is sourced from reclaimed, treated water from the Wastewater Treatment Plant.
