    We walked, but wished we had rented bikes to do the whole 24 km return. We made it to tunnel 2 , was about the 3 km mark. What a fantastic trail. Very easy to walk - nicely grades and flat. The only tricky part of the visit was the drive up to the top…very rough. Wouldn’t attempt the drive on spring time or wet weather unless you have an off road vehicle. Would definitely come back and rent bikes to do the whole trail.

    When visiting Kelowna, it is nearly impossible to not visit Okanagan lake. It’s beautiful! The mountains act as a backdrop. The water is very clean and the temperature is not too bad! There are many spots to access the lake, not just from the waterfront Park in downtown Kelowna. If you get the free map from the visitors center, that is very helpful to find all the beach access points that ended up being less crowded. This lake was definitely a highlight and should not be missed.

    Best place to see Kelowna and Okanagan lake from higher elevation. Just walk 10min up hill, you’ll get picturesque view of both. Well worth the walk!

    the views are amazing. We took so many photos. It was an excellent trip. I would recommend it to old people.

    Very nicely done with wooden bridges, small waterwalls, lovely plants and trees. Get to see the water, art installations, and check out the 'fancy' houses. A great way to stroll and can step off to go to the many restaurants in the cultural district.

    This lovely waterfront park is adjacent to the downtown Marina. It is a beautiful place for a leisurely stroll or activities such as swimming, sunbathing, watersports, beach volleyball etc. We also saw an inflated floating playground on the lake for the kids. The park offers a wonderful view of Okanagan Lake. There are a number of restaurants offering a wide choice of cuisines within walking distance. All in all, a great place to spend an afternoon or evening or the entire day.

    Great place to walk. Yet so close to town. Distances well marked so can be a short or long walk, pity it's not circular. Shared with bikes. If you want to get away from people and wine this is the perfect place to do it.

    The family came to this beach because we had about an hour and a half to kill. There is paid parking right beside but you can also find some free parking across the street along some side streets. If you have lots of gear or small children I would recommend using the paid parking.

    There are a lot of amenities close by like washrooms with separate change areas, restaurants, and ice cream across the street to name a few. There are also separate areas off the beach for volleyball and other activities, plenty of greenspace for picnics and such.

    The beach itself is great with areas for sun and shade. There is also a small playground on the beach. There are 2 zip lines; one along the sand and one off the pier into the water. The water is very shallow and goes quite a ways. As a result, the waves created by boats passing doesn't effect as much so great for kids. There is also a shower area for body and feet which is great to wash off the sand.

    Even though we were there for a short time we enjoyed our time there and liked all the amenities there.

    6 trailers fit nicely on the group campsite. We had an excellent time playing games outdoors with lots of space. Hot though even at the very end of summer as there is no shade. Single sites farther in had tree cover though. Clean sites and we will definitely return.

    this is in the artist home and yard. Geert Maas does really interesting bronze work as well as acrylic, lacquer and oil painting. It was a wonderful experience viewing his work and being able to ask the artist questions. Take the time to go see this. It is very interesting.

    I believe the farm is family run they were ALL so welcoming and nice ! They only let certain number of people in to the farm at a time so it is not overly crowded. I suggest go early (like as soon as they open) so you don't have to wait until the group before you finish picking. I highly recommend

    We rented a pontoon boat from Downtown Marina as part of our family holiday to Kelowna. We had a wonderful hour out on the lake and the boat was ideal for our use. My only gripe was the high cost for one hour’s rental. We would loved to have spent longer but it was too expensive. However, we were aware of this heading out but I really wanted to bring our Canadian grandchildren out on the water. We had many fabulous years on Ireland’s inland waterways with their parents when we’re grow up.

    Great moderate hike for solo, family (teens) or couples. The falls were well worth the trip as parts are fairly steep to climb. The water levels were low but the falls didn’t disappoint.

    When I went there last weekend the waterslide was closed and that was my favorite part of ben Lee. But I still have fun getting my hair wet from the bucket of water falling out of the triangle.

    Such a lovely walk along the lake promenade!! It's a wide sidewalk along the Marina, for every age and dogs on leash. In summer this is the promenade to stroll on with the whole family. Plus you can stop at the popular Cactus Club restaurant for lunch or dinner. In WINTER the Park has a SKATING RINK with a skate rental van, and a few food trucks servicing the skaters and visitors --as well many days they have a little outdoor fire to warm up around. Take a photo with our spirit bear sculpture.
