Many people in the Cranbrook / Kimberley area are unaware that there is a beautiful 164 Hectare park with greenspace, hoodoos, and a creek right in their back yard. Opening day for Wycliffe Regional Park is April 15th annually.

Wycliffe Regional Park is a day-use facility that can accommodate a whopping 700 people.

Amenities include:

  • 6 picnic areas and 3 picnic shelters
  • 9 barbecue pits
  • 2 activity fields and 3 ball diamonds
  • 11 horseshoe pits and 3 bocce pits

Although there is no swimming area, Perry Creek runs through the park and there is a beautiful picnic area down by the water with a view of the hoodoos.

This is a day-use park and is the perfect venue for a ball game, family reunion, wedding, picnic or company event.
