Looking for a different place to go for a walk? Try one of the following linear parks or pathways which offer year-round recreational opportunities for people of all ages and abilities. Many of Kelowna’s natural areas, including Knox and Dilworth Mountains, also offer unlimited walking opportunities.
To view cycling pathways, see our Bike Route Map.
Abbott Recreation Corridor
A great place to rollerblade, cycle or walk, the Abbott Street recreation corridor extends from Glenmore Avenue to City Park downtown.
Black Mountain Recreation Corridor
The pathway begins at Highway 33 and extends along Black Mountain Drive.
Brandt's Creek Linear Park
The crushed asphalt trail meanders through residential and commercial areas linking six neighbourhood parks and the Valley Glen Wetland. Beginning at Yates and Valley Roads, the trail stretches approximately five kilometres north to Millard Glen Park. The trail crosses Glenmore Road at Cross and Biggar Roads. Along the trail you will see ‘Growth’, a public art initiative consisting of seven sculptures installed at three different locations.
City and Waterfront Parks
Enjoy Kelowna’s premier waterfront walkway: a 2.5 kilometre pathway linking Waterfront Park, Stuart Park and City Park. The hard surfaced path is perfect for cyclists, rollerbladers and pedestrians. Use the tunnel under the new bridge to connect to the Abbott Street Recreational Corridor.
This popular 2 kilometre (one way) gravel trail can be accessed from the Crown Look Out in Knox Mountain Park or at the end of Poplar Point Drive. Paul’s Tomb offers a pleasant swimming and picnic area; dogs are allowed on-leash on the trail.
Quail Ridge Linear Park
The pathway begins at Quail Crescent and stretches approximately 2.5 kilometres to the south. The crushed gravel trail connects two neighbourhood parks and is a popular walking and jogging trail.
Mission Creek Greenway
The Mission Creek Greenway is over 17 km in length and travels through two distinctively different environments. A wide flat pathway extends along the creek 7 km from Lakeshore Road to Ziprick Road. The second phase, from Ziprick Road to KLO Creek, is about 9 km and features a narrower trail along the canyon.
Powerline Linear Park
Located in the Southridge neighbourhood of Upper Mission, Powerline Linear Park uses the Fortis Power Corridor as a recreational trail system and connects the Upper Mission to the future Tower Ranch neighbourhood.
Priest Creek Linear Park
This project started in 2008 and is a partnership with Friends of the South Slopes. The work includes construction of a trail and three bridges to provide pedestrian, cyclist and equestrian access between Balldock Road and Myra Bellevue Provincial Park.
Rails with Trails
The multi-use Rails with Trails pathway runs along existing CN Railway from Spall Road to Gordon Drive. Phase two of Rails with Trails has extended the pathway to Dilworth Road. The Angel Way Multi-use Trail connects Rails with Trails to the Dayton Street overpass over Harvey Avenue.
South Ridge Drive Recreation Corridor
This Southwest Mission pathway connects with South Mission Powerline Linear Park and Quarry Park. Access from Frost Road on the south end or Barnaby Road on the north.
