Kaleden Hotel Park contains one of the original landmarks in the area along Skaha Lake, the concrete shell of the historic Kaleden Hotel (constructed in 1912). This grassed area on the lakeshore is fast becoming a favorite place to hold wedding ceremonies.
Situated to the south of the Hotel Park is Pioneer Park which is Kaleden's primary public park. Its amenities include a sandy public beach, gazebo, volleyball, pickle ball, tennis courts and public washrooms. While Pioneer Park cannot be reserved for private functions (first come, first served), power can be provided for a modest fee.
From Kaleden, you can choose to walk or bike along the Kettle Valley Railway Trail which will take you north to Penticton or south to Okanagan Falls in what is best described as the scenic route.
The Kaleden Recreation Commission works to enhance the recreational opportunities and infrastructure available within Kaleden while respecting the heritage and natural features already present in the area.
