“Anything you want they've got it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Golf, baseball, soccer, hockey, curling and an excellent walking trail. Golf course is nice and prices are very reasonable. Even has mini golf. We walk the trail all the time 2km walk or the 3km walk. You can do less if you prefer. Have been to a few Kamloops Storm games ( hockey). Quite impressed they even have a live band!

“A leg stretcher”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

We walked the perimeter path (3km) to get some exercise after two days driving. It was hot, and we enjoyed cooling off by watching the ice hockey and speed skating training. Very impressed with the facilities.

“Island park great, with room to improve”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Nice park with lots of team-sports facilities. Much of the grass has been given over to soccer; good restaurant and small, cramped, not well-maintained mini-golf at one end.
It's an island park, but the slough is not useful for anything but the uncontrolled beaver population that is destroying trees of all sizes. On the river side, the current is fast and there is no decent access anywhere.
The circuit road on that side of the park is collapsing, with numerous dips where it is sinking, possibly due to beavers and marmots compromising the ground beneath.
This is a great park that could use some significant upgrades, including creating more parking in the wild areas at the west end.

“Great for a walk!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

I live close by and am always amazed at what goes on in the park. Great place to take a walk, stroll, rollerblade, etc and stop and watch the baseball, soccer, bike track or skatepark. Always something going on!
