During our four day stay in Kelowna, we walked in the park and the lake fronting promenade every day. It has a very strong local following. Beautiful views around every turn. We understand that in the summer months there are many activities which take place in the park including boat rentals and tours.

This is a lovely park right on Okanagan lake in the heart of Kelowna. We've enjoyed walking, picnicking, sunbathing and swimming here for many years of visits to Kelowna. It's a no hassle, friendly place for all to enjoy and there are a few swings and things for kids to have fun, too.

Walked through the park on my way to knox mountain. Very relaxing, and peaceful. Not a huge amount to see but it's on the waters edge.

Waterfront park on Okanagan lake has lots of things to do even in the early days of November. Situated right on the edge of the lake you can start a volleyball game, go wading, rent a jet ski or just sit and contemplate life.

It's quite lovely to walk along the water in the evening. The boardwalk is easy to walk, it's great for people watching, and it's pleasant to be here after a hot day. The park is beautifully maintained - it's really nice.

We were surprised to see how clean and well kept the park was on our visit to Kelowna. It is very close to downtown, has wide pathways for walking, running or biking. As the wind came up and some acorns were knocked off the trees, we watched all sorts of ducks scurrying to pick up the nuts and eat them.... More

Along a beautiful lake you walk past beaches, shops and other fun things to do and see. Close to everything Kelowna has to offer.

The Waterfront Park is connected to downtown Kelowna and includes scenic lake, mountain and marina views. We were there for the BMO Marathon and the park had lots of room for runners and other visitors. It is a lovely place to walk, bike or run.
