We were in Kamloops for a day and ended up spending most of our time here - it was a great idea. We spent a really peaceful afternoon near the river watching the ducks, kids playing and a fair bit of local activity.

This is a great park, especially on a hot summer's day. It can get busy, but there is plenty of space and shade to watch the kids playing in the water area, climbing area and the river. There are changing facilities and washrooms (basic). This is highly convenient if you are staying at the Sandman Hotel opposite, and walking distance... More

The kids had a great time at the water park and also the older kids swam in the river and had a great time. The bathrooms were clean and there was a concession stand, lots of shade and tonnes of room to spread out!

Beach was clean, lifeguards daily from 1-4pm. Concession stand has regular junk food. Rose park and friendship garden was not kept up but was still nice to view. Tennis course available. Washrooms and change rooms available. Kids splash pad water park was well maintained. Nice place for a picnic and to read.

We stopped in Kamloops in both directions to/from the Rockies. Perfect opportunity for the kids to stretch out and have some fun in the awesome water park. Adjacent to beautiful river. Highly recommend.

Lots happening, the park was full of happy holidayers. We were there to see our grand-daughters exhibit in the Heritage Fair, but also had some time to walk around. I was disappointed that too many activities came at a price (with 3 grandkids, it gets expensive), being more used to our local celebration where almost everything is free. The kids... More

When there attending a wedding with my family, I was amazed at how clean the park was and the water park for the kids. They was shade everywhere which is great in the hot summer months. The bathrooms could use more attending but otherwise, at great, large park for the kids to roam and be free.

Family park with a small water park for children and a beach to go swimming if you dare the cold water. It's a nice, quiet park when there is nothing else to do
