OPINION


As a Kelowna real estate brokerage, we know that one of Kelowna’s big draws is the Okanagan lifestyle. With the family day long weekend upon us, we thought we’d outline three low cost family activities that you can do in our community this weekend… You can get out there and enjoy some of what our city has to offer for very little cost!

Enjoy Family Day at the Kelowna Art Gallery

The Kelowna Art Gallery (located downtown at 1315 Water Street) is hosting a family day event this weekend where folks can participate in Family Day: FABstract printmaking. The event draws inspiration from the Gallery’s current exhibit, Fabrications. Attendees will be able to get hands on and make their own creations.

The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 13, 2017. The cost is $5 per person.

Take a trip to the H2O Adventure and Fitness Centre

A trip to the H2O Adventure and Fitness Centre is fun for kids and adults alike. Located at 4075 Gordon Drive in Kelowna’s Mission area, the H2O is the largest municipal waterpark in the country. It boasts a FlowRider® (a surf wave simulator, which is, unfortunately, out of service at the time of writing), wave pool, water slides, lazy river and so much more.

Get your skates on at Stuart Park

The Stuart Park Outdoor Ice Rink located at 1430 Water Street across from City Hall in downtown Kelowna is a great place to hang out with the family. Weather permitting, the rink is open daily from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Skates ($3.50 - $4.50), helmets and EZ bars ($2.00) are available for rent onsite.

Enjoy lovely views of Okanagan Lake while you get your skate on with your loved ones.
