Excellent walk
Nov. 2020
We had a great day here just walking along the pathways, Others walking were very friendly, and the path was in great shape. It was worth going to check out.

Beautifully maintained walking/cycling paths
Nov. 2020
It's accessible, gorgeous and quiet, and pretty easy to forget you are in a city. Today on my run they were actually using a ride on mower to blow leaves off of the trails - talk about attention to detail!

Excellent walk but...
Jul. 2020 • Solo
On our first day visiting Kelowna I took a solo walk down a part of the Mission Creek walk I hadn’t visited before. But...like anything in life you have to pick your spots! Do NOT start your hike late morning just as the heat settles. Very few people on trail, no birds singing and my shirt was drenched with sweat after an hour. I’ve done this walk early in the morning and it was gorgeous. Lots of people walking dogs, cycling etc. Only mad dogs and Englishman were out in the mid-day sun. Do it early morning....you’ll love it!

Gold Panning
Mar. 2020
I visited Mission Creek primarily to gold pan which is entirely legal if you only use a spade and a gold pan (no heavy equipment etc.) As this was so close to our families house and seeing as they'd never heard about the possibility of finding gold here I was skeptical; I associate gold bearing rivers with more remote locations in the middle of nowhere! Alas, I bought a small gold pan for $10CAD from a local shop (Fred's shop) and within my first pan I found gold flakes! I spent 2 days of my trip here panning and it was awesome fun, even though the river was thawing and it was absolutely freezing. We would've spent more time if given the opportunity. Other than the gold panning aspect, it was an amazing park, with facilities located along the stretch of river, a bike park that was very well maintained (i.e. not randomly built and unregulated) and nice paths to run/cycle/walk-dogs on. Apparently there are bears around so beware. Overall I would definitely spend a day or 2 here if visiting Kelowna, especially with family.

A gem with numerous access points
Apr. 2020
As the name implies, Mission Creek is the centerpiece of this park with the ability to walk along its banks from near the mouth up into Gallagher's Canyon and beyond if one is daring. And while the possibility of running into bears and other wildlife is slim nearer to the lake, once you trek upstream from the main parking lot on Springfield Rd., be very bear aware as it is not uncommon to run into these omnivores. And while it is generally a non-issue, as Spring comes into full force it is possible to meet a mama bear and cubs; stay clear as much as possible.

Back to the park. Features other than the Creek include:
1) a wheel chair accessible playground structure
2) a children's fishing pond
3) an Eco-centre
4) a covered picnic area
5) two pedestrian bridges that cross the creek... also numerous road bridges cross downstream and one crossing upstream. After Hollywood Rd S, there are no more crossings.

A pleasant amble, anytime of the year.

Note: my sons like to river surf during Spring runoff. Not only is this dangerous and can lead to death it is also illegal. But try telling that to young men who have not fully developed their prefrontal cortex.

4 stars.

A Go-To Trail
Mar. 2020
We hike this pathways system regularly, ranging from easy 45 minute walks to more challenging hikes in different sections. The scenery is lovely year-round, and we particularly like the fall when we can watch the salmon on their way to spawn.
We were last out last week, enjoying the fine spring weather. Perhaps we'll see you there the next time.

Wonderful Park for Everyone, Including Dogs!
Dec. 2019
I love walking the paths at this park. My dogs love it too. Either cross the bridge and head up the hill to the Turtle Pond, or walk the paths through the tundra and trees, or stay on the gravel paths along the river. You can cycle the gravel paths, or walk them. It’s peaceful and great for a beautiful walk along the river. Watch the Salmon in the fall, or fish, deer, birds and other wildlife through out the year.

Geocaching Road Trip: Mission Creek Greenway
Oct. 2019
My sister and I travelled to Kelowna for a day of geocaching. After lunch, we decided to look for a multi, a cache with two or more stages. The one we selected started at the Mall and took us to Mission Creek Greenway. We enjoyed walking the trail to find the second stage of this geocache. After a leisurely walk along the trail, we used one of the bridges to cross the creek. Fall was in full swing with brightly colored leaves on the surrounding trees as well as some ice forming along parts of the creek. We passed other hikers who were enjoying this Kelowna park. Some had their dogs with them and followed the rule of having them on lead. We stopped and read the informational signs along the way to our destination. We located the cache, then headed back to our vehicle. Our circle tour of this lovely area ended when we reached the parking lot where we started this adventure. This park has wheelchair accessible walk ways. There are numerous access points, allowing visitors to explore one section of the park at a time. More difficult trails are available for those who want a more challenging hike.
