Park
“Great park to have fun hiking with friends or family. One can walk to the top of the park or drive up by car. A spectacular view of the city of Kelowna and up and down Okanagan Lake. Have some fun and pack a picnic box and enjoy a day there. So many trails that will also take you to Paul's Tomb there you can jump into Okanagan Lake and cool of on a long hike. Do not forget your swimsuit & towel.”
