Beyond the Competition: Kelowna Activities

Athletes come to compete in specific events, but beyond those venues — whether it's the open waters of Okanagan Lake or the indoor fields of Capital News Centre — is the greater venue of Kelowna itself! For the athletes themselves or the families in tow to cheer them on, Kelowna is a city that knows how to have fun — winter, spring, summer and fall.

  • Got a thirst for local culture? Travel the Downtown Grapes & Grains Trail, a mix of wineries, distilleries and microbreweries offering a taste of Kelowna's small-batch craft beers, spirits and wines.

  • Need to work off some energy or keep those muscles moving? Take some laps at the H2O Center's Olympic-size pool or head to Myra Canyon for biking, hiking, horseback riding, aerial courses and more.

  • And of course, our #cityofrockets is also home to the WHL Kelowna Rockets, with more than 30 home games May through September in Prospera Arena, just a stroll from Waterfront Park.
