If you already live in Kelowna, British Columbia or visit the area in the summers or throughout the year, you know how many days of sun there are. But, just like in any other part of the world, there are always a few rainy days thrown into the mix. If you have children and you don’t want to hear the words, “I’m bored” for hours on end during those rainy days in Kelowna, consider taking them to one of these 4 entertaining venues.
Go Swimming At Johnson-Bentley Memorial Aquatic Center
Kids love spending time at this top rainy day attraction, where they can enjoy the indoor pool and splish’ splash with other children. This facility offers diving boards, slides, a muscle-relaxing hot tub, a Tarzan rope to swing on, a 25-meter pool and more. If you don’t want to get your feet wet, there are plenty of other activities adults can do while their kids burn off energy in the pool. Adults can work out in a fully equipped gym or get involved in a variety of other programs. There are also “dry” kids clubs that the kids enjoy once they get bored of the wet activities. This West Kelowna venue is open from 1 PM to 5 PM on weekends and from 6:30 AM to 9:30 PM Monday through Friday.
McCurdy Bowling Center On A Rainy Day
Kids love the colourful lights, action and disco music they experience at this popular bowling venue. Fun for all ages, the McCurdy Bowling Center is ideal for those rainy days when you want to have all the fun, but avoid the wet. Adults can join in all the fun as well, and then have a cold refreshing drink with other adults in the on-site brew pub. There is also a family-friendly restaurant available that includes tasty menu items for the entire family to enjoy. With 30 bowling lanes and admission of just $5 per game for adults ($4.50 for children 15 and under), “McCurdy Bowl” as it is known provides great family-friendly entertainment.
Shoot Lasers And Win The Game At Planet Lazer!
What could be more fun than spending a rainy afternoon indoors shooting lasers at your siblings or family members? There is non-stop music, laser tagging, a command central and loads of adrenaline circling throughout. Perfect for a kid-friendly time indoors, the Planet Lazer venue in Kelowna is a must-do when it’s pouring out.
Educate The Kids At The Kelowna Art Gallery
While the art gallery may not be the first choice on the list for a rainy day in Kelowna, the whole family can learn something new about art and its many aspects. Every Sunday there is a ‘Family Sundays’ event where the kids can get involved in hands-on activities and learn all about art. Children and adults can learn from local artists, create and discover their own artistic talents. The Family Sundays event runs from 1 PM to 4 PM on Sundays. The cost is currently $4 per person, which covers gallery admission and fun activities during the day.
Kelowna is usually known for its many outdoor amusement parks, wine tours and camping grounds, but there is always something to do when the weather goes sour. If the rainy weather has kept your children cooped up inside far too much for their liking, try one of these four fun venues that the whole family can enjoy.
