Kelowna is blessed to have a cool Waterfront Park. Excellent area for walking and restaurants and pubs very close by. Enjoyed watching skaters on the public rink. Did not hurt that the weather was beautiful.

Such a welcome relief to see a clean and well kept park in the city. There is a bit of an issue in the US right now, and we were so happy to see Kelowna has taken measures to keep their parks and public areas safe for tourists

Lovely spot to walk, swim or relax. Close to shops, restaurants etc. Several hotels in the area. Entertainment is often there as well.

Nice area to enjoy a relaxing stroll by the lake - was rather smoky when we did it due to the forest fires in BC but enjoyable nonetheless. A number of musicians playing along the way add to the atmosphere.

This is a really beautiful place to walk around. We watched an outdoor concert on Wednesday night, seems to be a regular thing there. Lots of sailboats and parasailing to watch, boat rentals nearby, so much to see.

A park with lots of greens, boardwalk, birds and lake front. Great for morning or after evening walks.

Good park to explore on foot. Loved seeing a lock for boats right in the middle of the action, very interesting to watch. Loved the views of the lake along the boardwalk.

It is one of the places where Kelowna’s residents or visitors can enjoy walking, biking, restaurants and coffee places, music, relaxing times, weekends, vacations and holidays, you name it.

Kelowna has the Lakefront walk of which Waterfront Park is generally considered the northern end. A beautiful and clean beach area with ample bathroom facilities and concession service, however, I rarely see the concessions open. Plus, for some reason the local citizenry has never really embraced this beach as a viable option; it remains sparsely used even during the height of summer. Perhaps the lack of any nearby parking has something to do with it; what little parking exists is either metered stalls on the street or the ever hated Impark lot. The Island Stage is likewise more often than naught empty save for skateboarders hanging around to the chagrin of the bylaw officers. The paved path through the gardens is nice but again not well attended. That leaves just the walk. Start or finish at Waterfront Park and people watch or enjoy the beautiful lakeside views or just breathe in fresh air. But as a park it seems to have missed the mark.
