Sunset at Stuart Park

For those coming to Kelowna for a winter vacation, or coming home for the holidays to visit friends and family, the ice rink at Stuart Park is a must do and it’s one of my all time favourite Kelowna winter activities. Don’t worry if you didn’t pack your skates, there’s rentals right on site.

Beach Days in November? Absolutely.

A couple of November days last week felt more like spring with the blue skies, and warm temperatures that reached 17°C. It was so warm outside that I was in shorts and a t-shirt and we even kicked off our shoes and walked in the water. We had lunch at Memphis Blues BBQ House then visited a few of our favourite parks and beaches, the kids wrestled in leaf piles and generally just played. We hope to catch a some more awesome weather before the real winter arrives in Kelowna!

Eagle View & Quail Flume Trail

Escape the city life and connect with nature by exploring the Eagle View and Quail Flume trails, located just west of the Quail Ridge neighbourhood. Both trails travel through Ponderosa pine forests and offer fantastic views of both landscapes and wildlife.

Guisachan Heritage Park

Guisachan Heritage Park is rich with history and character. It’s a beautiful park with lush flower beds surrounding the Guisachan House, originally built in 1891 as a summer home for the Earl and Countess of Aberdeen. Guisachan, or ‘Land of the Firs’ in Gaelic, was the name chosen for their new home.
