The University Village lands are located immediately south of the University of BC-Okanagan campus. The lands are dedicated for residential, commercial and institutional mixed use together with a significant Open Space and Park components. The centre piece of the Hilltop Village mixed use site is an amenity green space which integrates and blends the natural features of the site into an urban landscape. The eastern portion of the park is dominated by a natural knoll with indigenous planting and rock outcrops, featuring a water wall to animate the space.
The surrounding grades serve to provide opportunities for various level changes and tiered seating focusing on the central landmark obelisk or the stream course which meanders through a more naturalized area of the site. The park is envisioned as a very dynamic space which provides amenity to the neighbouring ground floor commercial units and the medium density residential which encloses the site on three sides.
