Work will soon begin to clear the rocks that fell in Garnett Family Park outside Okanagan Falls in January.

The rocks closed the park for two weeks after the rocks fell on Jan. 10, to allow for a geotechnical assessment of the area.

After the park was reopened, the pathway where the rocks had landed was kept closed by the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen.

Residents and visitors are asked to continue to stay away from the area until the work is complete.
