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.
