Summer recreation programs & registration

There's a new way to explore recreation and cultural programs this season. Instead of flipping through the online Activity & Program Guide, explore your favourite programs online and filter by age, program type, location, date and more.

You can still register in your preferred way: online, by phone or in-person at Parkinson Recreation Centre. Learn more in our Frequently Asked Questions below or watch our how-to video.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is there no online Activity Guide anymore?

The City of Kelowna’s Intelligent City Strategy is to find ways to improve the lives of residents through access to online services, technological innovation and collaborative problem-solving, creating local solutions to local problems.

We heard from both staff and the public that finding and registering for programs was a challenge and our staff sought out to find a tool that is easy to use, and simpler than a magazine-type guide. You can now easily find the programs you’re looking for as well as explore other new activities.

Will there ever be a printed (hard copy) guide again?

No. Unfortunately, printing the Activity Guide was not only an expensive initiative, but we also recycled hundreds of guides per season, even after reducing our print numbers.  Visit to explore and register from programs online, a tool which aligns with Kelowna’s Intelligent City Strategy.


How do I register for programs?

Registration hasn’t changed! Residents can still register for programs in their preferred way: online, by phone at 250-469-8800 or in-person at Parkinson Recreation Centre (1800 Parkinson Way).
