Hardy Falls is just over 6 hectares. A peaceful, cool place to visit on a hot Okanagan summer day.

Features:

  • A trail system follows Deep Creek into Hardy Falls
  • A picnic area and washroom facilities are available for public use
  • Kokanee Salmon spawning in September
  • Naturalists activities including birding, wildlife viewing and botany

Things To Do:

The park boasts a brilliant show of red kokanee salmon returning to their spawning grounds each year in early September to lay their eggs. Hardy Falls Regional Park is a particularly good place to watch the fish as they seem to be slightly larger in size and seem to arrive a little earlier than those in other nearby creeks. An easy 15-minute walk through the riparian area takes you to the Hardy Falls interpretation and viewing platform.

Regional Parks Interpretive Programs are available by donation for school and community groups who'd like to learn about our local environment and cultural history.  For information on these program opportunities or to book a presentation, please contact the EECO Centre at 469-6140. 

In the fall an interpreter is available for Kokanee Fish programs seven days a week. Each year the Regional Parks Department and the provincial government partner up to provide fish interpretation programs for local schools. Last year over 1,400 students got an up close look at the anatomy and life cycle of the Kokanee in Deep Creek.
