About two weeks after the city cleared out about 20 people living in the Esplanade Park area behind the Penticton Marina, many of the camps have re-established.

Winter homeless shelters in Penticton closed on April 1, leaving the city’s homeless on the streets while construction crews work away on a pair of supportive housing projects.

While some set up for the night in breezeways and alleys, Penticton’s homeless have long set up in the Esplanade Trail, an area dubbed by some “the hobo jungle” or “hobo trails.”
