Riverside to Pioneer Park Management Plan

Riverside Park, Waterfront Park and Pioneer Park are on the riverfront of downtown Kamloops near the junction of the North and South Thompson Rivers. Each park has a unique character and attracts visitors with distinct interests.

Riverside Park is a popular destination park visited by people of all ages; the main uses are walking, picnicking, play, beach activities, sports, and community events. Waterfront Park functions mainly as a corridor between Riverside and Pioneer Parks; the Rivers Trail through the park offers a quiet and relaxed atmosphere with benches and public art.

Pioneer Park is a meeting place for youth and dog walkers; lounging on the grass, swimming, dog use, and informal play are the main activities. The boat launch at the east end of the park is heavily used.

There has never been a management plan to guide park development. The 2013 Parks Master Plan for the City of Kamloops recommends that a management plan for the three riverfront parks be prepared to address community interests such as safety, security, new activities, environmental concerns, social opportunities, universal design and alternative transportation.
