“NICE SIMPLE PARK - UNDER CONSTRUCTION”
3 of 5 bubbles 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!

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.

“Nice to walk through”

Nice place to stop and go for a stroll and watch the kids playing in the water or on the playground equipment that is there. Beautiful views and always happy people smiling when you go by.

“Relay for Life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

I was a volunteer for the Kelowna Relay for life and Kelowna City Park was a fantastic venue! I have also come here on several occasions to go for a walk along the water with my partner or my dog or to watch a friend play soccer. There is a water park and childrens play area and plenty of grass to lay around or have a picnic.

“Great for Families”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

There are beach volleyball courts, a water park for the kids, basketball court, bike/walk path, and lots of grass and sand. Vendors will set up along the pathway and offer unique crafts or artwork for sale. The park is located right downtown and there are always things going on during the summer.
