Julia’s Junction

  • 2569 May Street, West Kelowna, BC
  • Photos don’t come close to being enough to show you how AMAZING this ultra-inclusive playground is – or to share the incredible story about how this playground came to be.

Ballou Park

  • 1859 Ballou Road, Kelowna, BC
  • I spotted this one on social media over the summer and immediately added it to my “MUST DO” list for our visit to Kelowna! Ballou Park is a new (2023) natural playground with a cable track zipline (the best kind!), a slide built into a hill and a cute wooden “treehouse”. There are other accessory features, like balance beams, climbing walls and swings, to name a few.

Quilchena Park

  • 347 Quilchena Drive, Kelowna, BC
  • We’ve been visiting Quilchena Park for years, after a family friend gave us a tip about it. We love the super slide, of course! The playground is fun, there are bathrooms on site and there is a lovely fenced spray park! The community and this playground were rebuilt after the 2003 Okanagan Mountain Park fire. (I didn’t get a photo of the spray park, but you can see one HERE on the City of Kelowna’s website.)

Last Mountain Park

  • 3171 Webber Drive, West Kelowna, BC
  • This newer playground in West Kelowna features a track zipline and a really cool main structure with a unique slide and a fabulous rope climber. Accessory pieces here include swings (1 standard, 1 baby and 1 saucer) and a unique spinner. The playground sits alongside a canyon and there are

Mission Creek Regional Park

  • 2363 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC
  • We love the new natural playground addition to Mission Creek Regional Park! This obstacle course of challenge and fun can be found just a bit to the east of the original playground location. The original playground features an older-but-still-awesome main structure and a huge rope climber!

Ben Lee Spray Park

  • 900 Houghton Road, Kelowna, BC
  • The giant spraying dragon is one of the coolest features at Ben Lee Spray Park in Kelowna – but the fun doesn’t end there. This park also features giant spraying flowers, a misting frog and colourful turning sprayers. There is a bathroom building on-site. Ben lee Park also has a fun little playground. You can see a photo of it HERE.

Parkinson Recreation Centre Playground

  • 1800 Parkinson Way, Kelowna, BC
  • We came for the giant Ogopogo – we stayed for all the rest of the fun! The Parkinson Recreation Centre in Kelowna features an inclusive, rubber-based playground. Behind the centre is a vast selection of adult outdoor workout equipment. There’s also a lovely little creek to explore and we found an area with a few pieces of older playground equipment too!

Strathcona Park

  • 2290 Abbott Street, Kelowna, BC
  • Proof that the coolest playgrounds aren’t always the biggest. Strathcona Park has a tall climbing tower with three massive orange slides. The entire back half is a series of unique rope climbers. This waterfront playground gets bonus points for having the most epic views!
Summerland Memorial Park is a bright and colourful playground in the heart of the Okanagan!

Just a short drive south of Kelowna is the quaint community of Summerland. We think you’ll like Summerland Memorial Park!
