Quennell Lake Car Top Boat Launch

Electoral Area 'A' Community Parks & Trails


Location Map Developed by community members almost twenty years ago on undeveloped road, the Ritten Road boat launch continues to provide important community boat launch access to Quennell Lake. The access was developed without any official permits from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI) and therefore no regular maintenance or management of the site has occurred which has resulted in a number of site design and management issues.

The RDN and the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations have investigated the potential public access locations on Quennell Lake and found that the existing Ritten Road boat launch continues to hold the greatest potential for an official public boat launch. In 2012 RDN Parks staff will be working with community members, user groups and the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations to develop a development plan and management strategy for the Ritten Road Boat Launch which will be reviewed by the Electoral Area 'A' Parks, Recreation and Culture Commission.

Community Consultation

The following two design concepts for a proposed cartop boat launch have been developed for the site based on initial feedback from the community. These concepts were presented to the community at an Open House held on April 17th, 2012 and a questionnaire was distributed to gather feedback on the proposal.
