Come with an open mind - the scenery is great - waterfront, marina and the background views of the hills. The landscapes are truly amazing, HOWEVER thanks to the mild climate expect to come across some homeless folks - and a lot of such!!!! Rather harmless, but in strong presence...

throughout the summer waterfront park has free music on different evenings. It is fun to just bring a blanket or a few lawn chairs while enjoying the beautiful lake view. there is a nice area kids (and adults) can dance.

Beautiful landscaping, clean and well laid out. Good signage that explained the source of the name Kelowna and interesting city and historical facts. Close to City Hall and Kasugai Japanese Garden. Parking close by.

Waterfront, skate park, sports fields, food stands, facilities, basketball courts, nice board walk along the lake, beaches, beach volleyball and lots of summer activities like the new water obstacle course. Great for a nice stroll, biking along the bike path or just coming to sit at the beach.

Large public park, wide walkways along the lake. Clean public washrooms. Great views of the Hwy 97 floating bridge and the marina. We watched a sea plane land and generally enjoyed walking the length of the park.

Very clean, nicely designed, and a relaxing way to stroll at dusk. The local security guards are a wealth of helpful information...don't be afraid to ask...they will tell you all kinds of interesting places to visit.

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.
