All activities are free to enjoy, including the Family Fun Zone sponsored by Save-On Foods, which features an assortment of bouncy castles, live family entertainment, face painting, kids games and more!

Since 2012, this has become a signature family event in Kamloops and has raised over $392,000! 100% of this money has been put back into our community, with no administration fees.

City Centre
Riverside Park 30

Riverside Park,
Kamloops, BC

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.
