$2m investment proposed for Penticton’s LocoLanding Adventure park
An investment proposal from the owners of LocoLanding Adventure park needs the support of the Penticton council to renew a lease on the land that the park sits on. The current lease expires in 2028, and the Stirling siblings – the proprietors of the park – have requested an extension to 2038.
“We’re simply asking for something we have already had. We are in year ten of our current 20-year lease. We are asking to go back to a full 20-year lease to justify the investment,” said LocoLanding owner, Diana Stirling, who has also requested a 10-year renewal review process halfway through the lease in order to effectively plan and continue building the business.
LocoLanding was founded in 2001 as a mini-golf course by Stirling’s parents, and has since grown to incorporate obstacle courses, high-ropes, go karts, as well as a number of other family attractions.
Details on what the investment might mean for the park are scarce, but Stirling has hinted at the possibility of a complete renovation of the park’s mini-golf course, featuring a fantasy storyline based on a tale of Penticton’s historical underwater gold mine, as well as a “canopy style” attraction that would be the first of its kind in Canada.
