The path along the waterfront was well paved and not too crowded. All of the people we came into contact with were very pleasant. The Rotary marsh just north of the Grand Okanagan Resort was quiet interesting and teeming with birds. This is a relatively dog friendly locale and all the animals were leashed and well behaved.

It is a great place for couples . The scenery is spectacular and gorgeous. We went for water bike sports and it's really cool to watch the city from the middle... You may also enjoy the gardens in front of the Delta Hotel

Other waterfront cities could take a lesson from Kelowna. Beautiful lake front walk and the wet land area at the end is amazing.

Kelowna has done their waterfront properly. It looks great and is a great place to stroll on a warm summer day. Looking forward to my next return.

Like any area, there are nice and rough areas of this park. It can be a fun spot for the summer months where there is free live music and things going on; street buskers, festivals, etc. However there are quite a number of homeless people unfortunately and this seems to be a main hang out. Drugs are also quite prevalent... More

Great place to just hang out, visit with friends, play sports or anything else you can think of. There are lots of artisans that sell their wears here.

Always a great walk on the Waterfront. One of my favourite areas to walk with our dog, as it's usually peaceful and almost all dog encounters have been happy and calm. The lake is seasonally busy and the vendors and people are friendly, courteous and eager to please.

This is a great meeting place or just a a beautiful place to spend countless hours enjoying the scenery and the water front walk ways. We have found this park to be always clean and well cared for and our last visit was no exception.

Great location and very nice for a walk. Close to lots of restaurants and just a neat place to watch the boats and float planes

So mice and relaxing. A nice walk along the water with the mountains in sight. Stop and take it all in.
