“Beautiful + great kids area esp in the summer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Beautiful clean park, nice water park for kids open until Labour Day.
Easy access to lots of downtown shopping and restaurants nearby. We went for our morning runs there, while we visited Kelowna. Beautiful views of the lake and surrounding mountains.

“Beautiful Park & Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Every chance we get, we head down to City Park to walk around the water. There is ample parking and it’s free weekends and after 6 pm. You can walk all the way from Hot Sands Beach (by the bridge), to The Grand Okanagan. It’s all level and easy. Or you can lay on the beach or play beach volleyball. There are many shade trees, but take care...if you visit the park, the homeless population like to hang out on the south end of the park. But they generally don’t bother anyone much and are respectful of visitors. The park is huge, so there are many other areas to visit, and it is extremely safe. There is also a water park for the kids that is open in the summertime only. The only drawback is that it’s concession burned down and the city isn’t replacing it. But there are many places to eat and get a snack just across the street. If you like roses, it even has a rose garden to enjoy. On Weekends vendors sometimes set up and there are interesting things to buy. It’s close to hotels and the Queensway Bus Exchange. The beaches are well maintained, and the bathrooms, well, they could use a little more attention, but what public ones don’t? Well worth the visit.

Very scenic with long walkway stretching from one end of the park to the other. right along the lake shore. The views are fabulous as well as the rose garden.
