  • This is such a beautiful park. Live music on occasion, Great Okanagan Beer Festival happens here annually. Beautiful environment to explore - especially toward the bird sanctuary.
  • One of kelownas best features. The park is very pretty, the stage is fantastic, the beach is clean and a really nice place to swim. The bird sanctuary beside it is gorgeous. A great spot for walking, biking or just hanging out. Good for families as well. The canteen mostly just has over priced junk, very little selection, nothing healthy and not open enough hours I give it no stars, but everything else is great.
  • Our family went to the waterfront park around 8PM to catch the sunset. I loved walking along the path and listening to the ocean waves crashing against the wall of the path. The view was mesmerising. You will not regret coming here :)
  • Great place to bring family. Nice views. Public washroom. When there are events here the concussion stand is open. Also open on the weekends.
  • There is lack of inexpensive parking. Paying $30 for event parking is just ridiculous. I think people going to take in local venues should get decent parking for a reasonable price

Where to stay in Kelowna

Downtown is considered the most desirable area to stay, with several hotels backing onto Kelowna City Park and offering views over the lake. The southern lakeside suburb of South Pandosy and the inland neighborhood of North Central also offer a range of accommodations, which cater to those looking for a genuine taste of Kelowna. If you have a car, you can stay at one of the roadside accommodations in Dilworth-Enterprise or Leathead.
