The walk along the Kelowna waterfront is great. We can see the bird nests perched over the water and the ducks swimming in the water. You can go for a boat ride or take a swim at the beach. The kids like climbing on the statue of Ogopogo . The board walk is very nice.

A very well maintained, clean waterfront park with a family beach, paved walkway, picnic benches and a marina directly adjacent.Lots of activity and bustling with people, but we never felt crowded in any way. There were some vendors present when we visited, selling handicrafts. "Music in the park" makes the whole experience very pleasurable. Boat rentals are available at the... More

We enjoyed our day in Kelowna. It is an up and coming area with great waterfront areas. The traffic was heavy, with construction in some places, but overall we loved it. We would return.

During our stay was the Centre of Gravity music festival so the place was hiving with loads of people and there was plenty of activity on the water.

This area is real new and fresh. Lots of resorts along the shore. From some angles, the newness and quality of the resorts, with the water and other features surrounding them, make you think you are in California or Florida (on a smaller scale but nevertheless a surprise).

Wow - we were expecting just a city waterfront but we found the rotary marsh and it was fabulous! You can see the fish from the walkway. Nice gardens too. Lovely walk :)

The Waterfront Park is such a beautiful place to wander around on a nice sunny day. Grab an ice cream cone from the shop near the corner and head to the water. It sounds lovely doesn't it? Unfortunately there often seems to be shady dealings going on in the park. Sometimes it is obvious what's going down, in plain view...in... More

Bathroom were very dirty and being pregnant, I had to visit them often :( only few parking spots close by, we had to walk a little while to get there. we probably will go back when the kids are teens...
