There is a waterfront park that has a great boardwalk that goes for quite a ways, there are beautiful trees, the lake, ducks, parks, washrooms along it. Take a stroll, a run, or just sit on a bench and soak up the beauty

There is a well maintained boardwalk around the waterfront which affords nice views of Okanagan Lake, the bridge and West Kelowna. I was excited to find the boardwalk named after Stanley Simpson (my father's name). Pleasant walk with shade trees, places to buy drinks and clean public toilets available.

Great place to be in the summer. Lots of shows and action. Take a walk on the dock or go for an ice cream.

With the new walkway installations and the addition of a new Marina, this is a must if you are visiting Kelowna, no other place with views like this.

Easy walk, or jog. Beautiful scenery, fresh air and lovely places to stop rest and take pictures. Weeping willows, mallard ducks, grasses waving in the breeze and people just walking enjoying whatever makes them happy. Little noise. Loved everything about it. Took tons of pics of yacht and surrounding water and plants etc.

Staying at the Delta Grand Okanagan, spent Sunday around the waterfront park. Morning spent watching the Marathon runners and sea planes taking off. Later had a good time checking over the yachts in the Marina. Lovely walks around the lake edge leading to a small wildlife sanctuary.

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.
