City Boat Launch Planning

Boat Launch Graphic

The North and South Thompson Rivers provide important recreational opportunities for Kamloops residents. The rivers provide convenient water access for swimming, fishing, floating, paddling, and boating. The rivers are also well utilized by many boating and paddling clubs.

The City is currently reviewing three of its boat launches—McArthur Island, Pioneer Park, and Valleyview—to better understand how the City can support boat access to the rivers. As part of this review, we are engaging with stakeholders and members of the public who access City boat launches to learn more about how they use these facilities. You may be asked to participate in a short survey during July 2019 at one of the local boat launches, or you can take the survey online by clicking the link below.

Your input may be used to make future decisions on maintaining and/or improving City boat launches. The City thanks you for your participation.
