1995: 1997 - Jack Seaton Park Enlarged

Jack Seaton Park’s 9.2 acres were unofficially donated to the municipality by the Winfield and Okanagan Centre Irrigation District. That donation was formalized when the municipality agreed to pay $575,000 for another 27.15 acres of land east and west of the Park. That purchase price included $100,000 paid for upgrading the land with water service. Council approved the bylaws for that agreement in December 1997.

The purchase is being paid in 10 annual installments of $57,500, and is being funded by park development cost charges collected from future development.
