Kamloops residents are invited to a free, interactive Open House on Saturday, May 28, 10:00 am–2:00 pm, at the Civic Operations Centre at 955 Concordia Way. In recognition of National Public Works and Civic Operations Week, residents are encouraged to come out and have fun while learning more about the City’s Civic Operations Department. 

This family event has activities planned for all ages and aims to showcase the important contributions Civic Operations provide in Kamloops through infrastructure, innovation, mobility, and security.

Free family activities include:

  • tours of the City’s sign shop, greenhouse, and mechanical shop
  • hockey target practice - with a backhoe!
  • face painting
  • build-a-bridge construction activity
  • birdhouse building and painting
  • interactive archaeology activity
  • Electric Avenue – check out the electric garbage truck!
  • traffic signal light activity
  • hard hats, popcorn, and cold treats for children
  • cold drinks and hot dogs – BBQ by the Valleyview Lions Club
  • door prizes and more!

The theme for the 2022 Public Works Week is “Ready and Resilient”, and children are encouraged to come dressed as their favourite superhero!

Visitors will receive a site map of the event, which will be stamped at each open house station. Attendees will have an opportunity to use their map as a ballot for door prizes, including a hanging basket! The open house and parking can be accessed via Bunker Road.
