The park can be accessed from Shannon Lake Road or from the small walkways that link the park to the adjoining neighbourhood. Turn off  Hwy 97 South,  onto Bartley Road, turn left onto Shannon Lake Road, the park is on the right hand side.

Sunday, May 6th, the ‘Go Fish’ Grand Opening takes place from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm at the special netted fishing area in Shannon Lake Regional Park.  The celebration will see hot dogs and beverages (please bring your own water container to reduce waste) available for a donation.  The youth fishery also starts for the season on May 6th at the Hall Road pond in Mission Creek Regional Park in Kelowna.

The program runs each weekend until Father’s Day Sunday, June 17th, between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm.  Each Saturday volunteers will be on site while RDCO Parks Services staff and volunteers will be on hand each Sunday.

The program offers youth age 15 and under, a chance to catch one rainbow trout each day without a fishing license.  A limited number of rods, reels and bait will be available each weekend for youngsters to use and try their luck!

Everyone taking part in the Go Fish program is asked to please respect our park neighbours by parking only in the designated areas or where directed by staff.

‘Go Fish’ is possible thanks to the generous support of the Peachland Sportsmen’s AssociationKelowna and District Fish and Game Club along with the Ministry of EnvironmentFreshwater Fisheries Society of BC and the Summerland Trout Hatchery.
