Kelowna parks ready for play this summer
The City of Kelowna’s annual Park & Play program is underway. Families are invited to join city staff weeknights throughout the summer for free family fun.
A variety of sports, relay races and family activities will be organized by a team of knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff, encouraging families to play together.
“Kelowna has beautiful outdoor spaces in communities across the city,” said Sarah Semeniuk, City of Kelowna recreation technician. “And through this free series of local events we are encouraging families to get to know their neighbours and have good, active fun with their children.”
The program is featured in 10 neighbourhood parks throughout the city for this eight-week period, Monday to Friday evenings, from 5 to 8 p.m. or dusk.
