Current Information for Travelers about High Water Levels

Currently, Kelowna and area are experiencing high water levels due to increased spring runoff. Despite these high water levels, visitors can freely travel to, from and around Kelowna and area and enjoy many activities in our beautiful destination. Officials are closely monitoring the situation and providing frequent updates.

While speed boating and boating activities that create a substantial wake are not recommended, the lake is busy as usual with sailboats, kite surfers, stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, and canoes and there are an abundance of other activities to enjoy in and around the city itself.

Summer is great for getting outdoors to hike and bike our scenic trails. Food and drink lovers have many options to fill their glass and plate. Our energetic downtown is hosting fun events and offers great shopping, and golfers will love the sunny conditions.

With hundreds of parks and beaches in the Central Okanagan, there are many places to seek out the sun, or find some shade. Contact the Kelowna Visitor Centre with specific questions, for travel ideas and trip planning assistance.

While the majority of parks and attractions are open to visitors, some beaches and waterfront parks have been closed temporarily. Please see below which waterfront parks and beach areas are open.
*Listed below are beaches and parks that are directly adjacent to a water source. Not listed are the hundreds of other open parks in the Kelowna area.
