“Very nice, and sometimes very busy!”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Is is a great park with nice cool grass to relax on and enjoy the activity of the lake. It ca also be very busy, sometimes crowded. The buskers are quite unique and there are usually some interesting kiosks along the boardwalk with great artisan discoveries. The park can sometimes be a bit annoying with panhandlers but the local constabulary try to keep a handle on it.

“CHANGE IS GOOD”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

Since changing the park due to the bridge re-build/update the park has also had a facelift. The boardwalk is handicap accessible although there are only 2 handicap parking spots near the water. (Note to the city: not all handicapped persons are in wheelchairs, I use a cane so walking that looong distance from the parking lot is a tough one) Trees line the sandy beach for the most part so finding a shady spot should not be difficult. For kids there is a playground AND a water park. There are features to numerous to list so just google Kelowna City Park. Enjoy!

“A place to avoid”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

Shared the following on a photography website, but feel it also merits trip advisor.

Was shooting in CIty Park, Kelowna in the early Saturday AM. Was approached and harassed by cops.

The park is ok on it's own, but when a photog gets harassed when applying his craft, then whatever the park would have had to offer, is immediately dwarfed., I'd stay away from Kelowna in general.

“Where Diner En Blanc Kelowna was held”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Loved the view, summer time sitting over the water, grass neatly kept up and tidy, had a blast attending diner en blanc there!
Summertime is always filled with booths of handmade jewelry and craft items.

“So pretty, definitely will visit again”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

The city park is a pretty little gem of a park overlooking the lake. There are gorgeous roses everywhere here. Free parking as a tourist was difficult to find, but paid parking is readily available.
