Located between Kelowna and Penticton, Summerland shares the shores of Okanagan Lake with its neighbouring communities. 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 centres with quiet solace. Primarily an agricultural community, this Tudor-revival town centre itself is situated on a flat area above Okanagan Lake. The with surrounding fertile valleys and forested ridges naturally make Summerland a desirable tourist destination. Residential options are diverse with hillside homes with sweeping lake views, retirement townhomes, rural agricultural influenced properties, and superb lakefront neighbourhoods.


What better name can exist for a community but Summerland! Infused with notions of summer goodness and the allure of a gentler pace make it an attractive choice for those that want to live the Okanagan lifestyle at a slower pace. A large remnant of an ancient volcano, Giant’s Head Mountain, defines this community geographically.

On the shores of Okanagan Lake, the primary focus in Summerland is outdoor recreation, local farms that provide sought after fruit, a variety of small family wineries, family fruit processing shops, and tourist destinations like the Kettle Valley Steam Railway.
