There is a beautiful trail that runs all the way from Okanagan Lake all the way into the Joe Rich/East Kelowna area. This trail is called The Mission Park Greenway located within Mission Creek Park. This trail is an easy walk for the whole family, including the family pet! Mission Creek allows dogs on leash.
It was a gloomy Saturday with the sunny fall days turning more into rainy fall days. We decided to go for a nice leisurely stroll down Mission Creek. We parked in the parking lot located off Hollywood Road S where you can find flushing toilets! We walked along the trail for about an hour stopping to check out the creek and take photos along the bridges.
We eventually turned around because the rain got much worse and started to pour down. We did notice that even though part of the trail was washed out, due to spring and fall storms, they have created a trail that detours you around this section and back onto the trail. However this detour section is more of a moderate difficulty due to the incline and stairs. There were garbage cans and benches located throughout this section of the trail along with a, at the time, very clean porta potty. This trail runs along Mission creek weaving through the trees which makes it feel like you are walking on a trail on the west coast.
The Trail Scoop:

Garbage bins: A few points along the trail
