Polson Park Vernon Reviews
Feb 18, 2008
Polson Park is found right in the city, and is the scene of school track meets, lawn bowling, water park activities, great photo opportunites (such as graduation), and weddings, among other things. Here, you'll be able to walk along Vernon Creek, and look at the pond that is home to swans and ducks. A little further down the road that runs through the park, you will find gardens of flowers and shrubs.
The park has a big parking lot with plenty of room for many cars, or RV's. There are two tennis courts that are fenced in, so need to worry about losing your tennis balls. There are public washrooms, which can sometimes attract questionable patrons, but for the most part, there is no need to worry.
Sharing the park parking lot is the Okanangan Science Centre, which perfectly suits the park, hat with its old, red brick facade.
In the summer, there is quite a lot of entertainment, both in the band shelter, and just on any section of the big, grassy area. You are guaranteed to see all-day entertainment on Canada, and be able to hear it all over town. On any summer evening, you will find different bands practicing under the trees.
First thing in the morning, before it gets too hot, is a good time to do laps around the big, flat open field. You will definately not be the only person doing it.
Polson Park is a great place to check out, and while you're there, you can run across the road to Tim Hortons for a donut and drink!
