Free fun for kids in Kelowna parks

Park & Play starts Monday, July 6 and continues until the end of August.

The parks will soon be alive with the sounds of fun and laughter as the City of Kelowna’s Park & Play program is back for its seventh season.

New this year, several of the Park & Play events have been scheduled to take place at the same time as Parks Alive! musical entertainment.

“The free summer program will have a little something for everyone this year with the addition of the Parks Alive! dates,” said Louise Roberts, City of Kelowna manager community and neighbourhood programs.

“The program is becoming more than just about play; it’s also an opportunity to connect with neighbours and bring together communities.”

Starting Monday, July 6 until the end of August, the city’s Park & Play crew will fill local parks across the city with games and activities suitable for all ages. Each event runs from 5 to 8 p.m., weather permitting.
