Gyro Park is a very popular community recreation day park in the heart of Nelson, BC in the Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada. The garden park extends onto a rock outcropping viewpoint which overlooks the downtown sector of Nelson, BC and the west arm of Kootenay Lake.

Kootenay Photo Gallery - Gyro ParkGyro Park includes an outdoor recreation pool, many manicured flower gardens, a network of short walking trails, many sitting and viewing benches, a jungle jim playground, a viewing gazebo overlooking the pool, some change rooms, clean washrooms and an exceptional lookout point.

The network of the short walking trails connects all of the activity areas in the park together. Most of the paths are paved, some are gravel trails. Some walking paths cross over bridges, some paths connect together and all are lined with sitting benches. Most of the sitting benches provide views of the gardens and some of the benches are clustered together around the recreation pool area.

A highlight in the park is the recreation pool. As one can only imagine, on a hot summer day, the recreation pool is a popular spot for families to spend a day with their children. When the pool fun is done, children can play in the playground or wander the trails.

Another highlight in the park is the rock outcrop lookout overlooking the community of Nelson, British Columbia, Canada. The lookout provides views of the downtown of the community, the mountains in the background and the west arm of the lake. The lookout is very easily accessible, even wheelchair accessible. All ages can enjoy the views.

Also take the time to view the many floral gardens in the park. The gardens and the many deciduous trees in Gyro Park change color with the seasons. The park is open year round. Bring a camera.
