DESCRIPTION & LOCATION
Summerland is located between Kelowna and Penticton and shares the shores of Okanagan Lake. Located 35 minutes from Kelowna and a mere 10 minutes from Penticton this community offers the best of both worlds- easy access to larger urban centers without compromising quiet solace. Primarily an agricultural community this Tudor-revival town center itself is situated on a flat area above Okanagan Lake with its surrounding fertile valleys and forested ridges naturally making it a tourist destination. Residential options are diverse with hillside homes with sweeping lake views, retirement townhomes, rural agricultural influenced properties, or superb lakefront neighborhoods such as Trout Creek.
AMENITIES & ATTRACTIONS
What better name can exist for a community but the name itself Summerland! A name infused with notions of summer goodness and the allure of a gentler pace make it a natural tourist destination. A large extinct volcano, Giant’s Head Mountain, defines this community geographically.
The shores of Okanagan Lake is a primary focus of outdoor recreation, local farms provide sought after fruit, a variety of smaller family wineries, family fruit processing shops, and tourist destinations like the Kettle Valley Steam Railway.
