The city's name originates from the Syilx First Nations word for Grizzly Bear; be sure to stop by Stuart Park and appreciate the bear sculpture during your visit! Whether you come for outdoor adventures, world renowned food and wine, or our ever expanding art and culture district, Kelowna has exactly what you are looking for in a fun yet relaxing getaway.
No matter what time of year, Kelowna is a great place to be. Spend a summers day strolling down downtown on Bernard before jumping in the lake.

Witness the spring time flowers bloom at Guisachan Heritage Park.
