Penticton's Rollerblade Park
(aka: Penticton Youth Park) is a great place to visit and enjoy.
I have made a point to visit it frequently every summer.
Take advantage of a nice day and get outside for some fresh air!
Rollerblading is a great form of aerobic exercise that tones parts of
the body that you never normally use.
Rollerblading both improves balance and
strengthens every muscle from the lower back to the knees. Muscles in
the upper arms and shoulders are also developed when arms are swung
vigorously while skating.
I started skating at age 36. Anyone can do it. Blading is so fun and the skate park in Penticton is one of the best in Canada.
I like to take a large milk jug half full of ice then topped up
with water. It's great to take to the skatepark on a hot day. The water
stays ice cold for hours.
Check out my You-tube video that shows the park clearly and me and my family swimming and rollerblading in the Okanagan Valley.
