Great cycling and walking park.

If you love walking, cycling or playing sports, this is the place to be. There is a great walk along the river. You can sit on the benches along the river and just enjoy quiet.

The park is a nice place to go for a walk, large enough that a few laps will take you a fair distance. This park is also the main hub of baseball and soccer (football for the brits) in kamloops, with regular youth soccer events going on most evenings in the spring & summer.

Curling rink is clean and the ice is excellent. The park has a wonderful walkway, which is totally paved. The park also has a very good nine hole golf course, which is not very expensive.

This is a great area for walking, jogging, or rollerblading as it is a flat area surrounded by the Thompson River. It has many sports fields, an arena, and 18 hole and mini golf courses. Lots of grassy areas to just catch some rays. One of the best areas of the North Shore of Kamloops.

My husband and enjoy biking and walking in this park. It is always to see the fields alive with one or more sports. The path around the park is peaceful as it winds it's way near the river and gardens.

There is an excellent, paved walking or cycling trail surrounding the park, roughly 2 miles in length. The park is surrounded by water so there is a variety of water fowl and beavers to see.

Kamloops prides itself on the sporting venues and and they should! This park has ball fields, soccer fields, arena, etc beautiful! The park along the river so in between games a walk on the trail is an option. The park is easy to find, just the other side of the river from the downtown centre.
