“Beautiful and relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Very quiet park that has wonderful walkways along the water. A strong police presence noted but no sign of any activity that might require them.

“Beach park,for day use only”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you want a swim on a hot day, and you happen to be in the center of town,you will be happy that there is a beach.The beach is right in the center of the city,restaurants, shops and cafes are plentiful on Bernard Ave.,and all are in walking distance. Parking can be a problem. Not recommended for nocturnal moonlight strolls.

“NICE SIMPLE PARK - UNDER CONSTRUCTION”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I met a young woman who wholeheartedly endorsed this park. She did warn me though that there are shady characters in the park, but there is a lot of entertainment as well. She continued by explaining to stay out of the park at night.

I love the view of the valley, the quiet waters and of course the fresh mountain air.

As it turn out, I had a few drinks earlier and fell asleep in the park. I was not bothered by anyone. It felt safe. Lots of people walking dogs and simply taking in some excersize.

I was awakened by a security guard who kindly explained that the park closes at 22:00. (10 P.M.) Once I explained that I was a visitor, he understood and simply suggested that there is a $500 fine for being in the park after hours. But he also suggested that because I was a visitor, the authorities would not likely fine me. Phew... got me scared there for a second :)

The waterfront at that end of the downtown core is clean, very friendly and beautiful.

Big kudos to the city of Kelowna for the fine planning and keeping the area clean and safe!

“A nice walk along the lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Lots of well maintained flower beds and trees. Great walking paths, tennis courts, kiddies pool and skateboard park. Enjoyment for the whole family whether you bring the kids, your dog or just want a nice long walk.
