Parks and Playgrounds
If you are looking for somewhere to spend a couple of hours or a day with your kids, you can check out:
Parks and Recreation Offices (Downtown – 828-3580)
6 West Seymour St. Booking and Rentals – 828-3492
As well, Kamloops has a lot of great little playgrounds nestled into the neighbourhoods of our community.
Here is where you come in, parents. Â There isn’t a directory of addresses of great playgrounds and parks in Kamloops, so let’s make one! Â Whenever you go to your local park, take a picture and drop me an e-mail with that photo, as well as the address of the park (firstname.lastname@example.org).
That way, we can set up a directory of the great little playgrounds that we have, here in Kamloops.
