Kelowna celebrates opening of Bennett Bridge

Kelowna is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the opening of the William R. Bennett Bridge, which connects Kelowna to West Kelowna across Lake Okanagan.

At 690 metres, the five-lane structure is Canada’s longest pontoon bridge and rests on nine pontoons.


To commemorate this occasion, Canada Post printed a Picture Postage stamp, and the Kelowna and District Stamp Club created a cover as well as a postcard. The club previously commemorated the initial opening of the bridge in 2008 as well as its five-year anniversary in 2013.
