Boyce Gyro Park Beach
Gyro Park Beach is one of Kelowna's most well known and favorite beaches. Located in South Kelowna, Boyce-Gyro Park is popular for the ameninities it offers, it's close location to the Mission Park and Pandosy shopping areas and it's also close to nice hotels and motels in the South Kelowa city area.
Also known as Boyce-Gyro Park, the park and beach was donated to the Kelowna Gyro Club (a men's social club) in 1932, by a local Dr. Benjamin deFurlong Boyce.
The Gyro Club later purchased adjacent lots to make the park bigger, and then donated the park to the city of Kelowna in 1974.
Gyro Beach Park has lots of grass and is well shaded, so you can be in the sun, or not.
There's also volleyball courts, a playground and picnic areas, as well as washroom facilities.
If you want, you can rent paddle boats, canoes and kayaks, from Gyro Beach Watersports, or try stand up paddling on a paddle board. Sometimes you can get a deal on watersport rentals from Gyro Beach Watersports at Groupon in Canada.
Pack a lunch, bring books, games, and sand toys for the kids, and make a day of it at Gyro Park.
How to get there: Follow Lakeshore Road just a block past the Mission Park Shopping Center in South Kelowna. There's a small parking lot at the south end of park. Get Google map directions here!
