McArthur Island is the nicest park in Kamloops. Walking trails, birds, gophers, sports, picnic. There is something for everyone there. Make sure you take something to feed the gophers in the spring and summer. There is even a boat launch with access to the river.

McArthur Park boasts excellent walking areas, biking areas, a golf course and a functional Sports Complex. Hockey schools and games, curling games and bonspiels.... all under one roof. Check it out.... you will be impressed.

FYI limited shady areas/trees near the soccer pitches. Parking can be difficult to find when there's a large event occurring so...More
