Riverside Park ~ Centre of the city
Located on the banks of the Thompson River next to the Interior Savings Centre and just minutes from downtown. Enjoy a picnic in the picturesque park, stroll along the beach, go for a refreshing swim, bring the kids to the Variety Kids Centennial Water Park, or play a game of lawn bowling.
In 2009 the City of Kamloops installed a new integrated, accessible playground for children 2-12 years of age. The playground is an added attraction to an already impressive City park that offers something for everyone to enjoy.
Or just soak up the sun and watch the water skiers and wakeboarders do their routines. However you spend
your day at Riverside, it is bound to be picture postcard perfect.
Rotary Bandshell / Music in the Park
Drop by later in the day for "Music in the Park" which features different bands and musical genres and plays
all summer long, each and every evening, from 7-8:30 pm.
