From ‘Summer Nature Camps’ to ‘Park Fun Zones’ to ‘Going Wild at the EECO' — everything you need to know about activities, events and programs in our Central Okanagan Regional Parks is now available in the Summer-Fall edition of ‘Your Guide to Regional Parks’.

Communications Officer Bruce Smith says “The Guide contains the handy ‘Year at a Glance’ which provides a month by month listing of programs and activities at the EECO located in Mission Creek Regional Park and in many of the Central Okanagan’s 30 other Regional Parks. There’s also a colour map showing Regional Park locations and some of the features and amenities that are available in each.

Smith adds, “With summer fast approaching, parents of youngsters age three to seven may want to check out the dates, times and registration information for this year’s ‘Summer Nature Camp’ program which takes place mornings during July and August in Mission Creek and Bertram Creek regional parks. Registration for the program begins on June 1st and spaces fill up quickly!”

The guide also has the details for our interpreter guided ‘Take a Hike’ program and again this year our Community Recreational Initiatives Society or CRIS partners will be holding special Adaptive Adventure walks and hikes in our Regional Parks.

Smith adds, “We’re continuing with our special ‘Families in Parks’ events that will engage every member of your family and you’re invited to join our ‘Parks Fun Zones in Lake Country’ program with games and activities on Friday’s during July and August alternating between Reiswig and Kaloya regional parks. We also have our free, drop-in ‘Summer Story Time’ each week in Mission Creek and Gellatly Nut Farm regional parks.”

The new Regional Parks Guide is available anytime online by visiting Or you can pick up a copy at the Regional District office (1450 KLO Road), the Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan in Mission Creek Regional Park (Springfield and Durnin Roads) and at any local government office, recreation centre or tourist and information offices in the Central Okanagan.
