The Aerosmith lead singer was in town for a concert at Kelowna's Prospera Place later that evening.
He dropped by the downtown Kelowna park to play a short excerpt of the band's song Dream On at one of the city's five free pianos.
Tyler stuck around for a few brief moments to chat with the small audience before leaving as quickly as he appeared.
News of the sighting quickly spread on social media.
Watch a video of his brief appearance.
