    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!

    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.

    We visited Kelowna last week and found Okanagan Distilleries on our first day and was so impressed we visited the establishment every day during our vacation. We tried all the specialty gin and whiskey drinks off their menu however came back for the Gin Blossom with lemonade as our favorite. I never drank Gin before however I'm now converted.
    Lynn and Christie were great hostesses adding to the experience. Okanagan Distilleries on Bernard St is a definite stop on your trip to Kelowna.

    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.

    Came here on Wednesday and Saturday near the end of August. The Saturday one definitely has the most vendors. Even went to the small one on Sunday at the waterfront.

    Parking is challenging if you're coming from the South side of Kelowna. The first time we went was on Wednesday and we parked at the mall across the street. The second time on Saturday we found the dirt parking lot beside the market that you can get in from the North side.

    There was a good selection of vendors from alchohol, soda, honey, fruit and vegetables, crafts, food trucks and everything in between.

    It was a great way to spend an hour or so wandering down the aisles taking a look at all the offerings. It can get quite crowded on Saturday's so watch out for that.

    We attended Tootsie last night February 15th, 2024! It was so good; from start to finish so good, the actors were excited, committed and talented. Michael Dorsey (Michael Esposito II) was played brilliantly. Ron Carlisle (Andrew De Pieri) was spot on and memorable. Sandy (Joanne Ryan) went toe to toe with Michael and, Jeff for that matter, who by the way was very enjoyable as well. Julia (Guiliana Borsella) was the calmness through out the storm and at times that was how it felt while LMAO! Bloody Brilliant, highly recommend!

    Visiting the visitor centre is such a great idea to get the free Kelowna map which basically list all the hotels, restaurants, wineries, beaches, and anything else you can think of. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There are many brochures to suit every type of activity. Plus it’s location downtown on the waterfront Park is beautiful.

    The museum is divided into a Wine and Orchard Section. It has nice exhibits and staff try to make your visit memorable. The bee hive is interesting and history and how to make ice wine informative. If you have and hour or two a great way to spend it.

    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.

    I cannot say enough great things about Joe and Urban Distillery. We've had 2 tastings that blew our minds, the products are excellent and Joe's presentation is phenomenal. The food is amazing and a great price. Amy is also excellent and tons.of fun.

    We have lived in Kelowna for 10 years and this was our first visit. Shame on us.
    Small galleries have a certain charm. They do not come across as imposing, as big museums do. They also present other than the masters, so are a little easier to appreciate.
    This gallery met these criteria and we enjoyed our visit. The focus was on Canadian artists and some of the works were lovely and some were quirky. Not all met with our admiration, but we enjoyed being exposed to the variety. There was a separate gallery dedicated to the grizzly bear, and a third exhibit showing interviews about racism. We preferred the Canadian artists' exhibit.
    We were greeted pleasantly and will be back. We concluded our Sunday afternoon with a pleasant walk along the waterfront and a coffee at an outdoor patio. Great afternoon.

    Our wine server Kara made this visit worthwhile, she was friendly and very knowledgeable about the wines. We had to book ahead then there was a slight delay getting in because of a fire nearby. We liked lots of the wines and did not feel rushed to taste and go. The cashier Linda W might have been having a bad day as she was not very friendly. We were quite shocked that they wouldn't take cash which is legal tender in Canada and I thought against the law not to accept it???

    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.

    Enjoyed a few hours here with friends. It has a nice and relaxed atmosphere with a variety of beers and other drinks. They also serve snacks. There are various sitting areas other than the bar. We also received a discount for staying at the Delta next door - part of the resort fee offers!
