Photo: Kelowna Sail Sculpture Twilight

The Kelowna Sails sculpture and fountain is lit up at twilight in City Park along the Okanagan Lake waterfront in Kelowna British Columbia.

The Kelowna Sails sculpture and fountain located along the shores of Okanagan Lake, has been a common and celebrated sight in the city since it was placed there in the early 80s. It is about 40 feet tall, and was sculpted by renowned artist Bob Dow Reid. It took him two years to complete and is looked after by the City as it is such a famous landmark and symbol. The sail sculpture seems to glow as twilight takes hold of the day.

It is so recognizable that when the City was designing a new logo there was overwhelming support for the sculpture to be part of it. However, when the logo was unveiled in August 2009, there was no sign of the sails and many expressed disappointment that it had been left out. Residents were asked what image they associated with Kelowna more than any other and Bob Dow Reid's Sails sculpture was mentioned more times than any other structure. ... continue below the picture...

The waterfront area along the Okanagan Lake shores is part of a redevelopment project that will see some of the features change or improve, but the Sails sculpture is one landmark that will stay the same no matter what. The water feature around it may be redesigned, but the sculpture will not be. There mgiht be more of an opportunity to walk and sit around the sculpture as this is such a beautiful and popular location, both tourists and residents like to enjoy the view from this waterfront.
