An Okanagan oasis

Centrally located in the Okanagan Valley, Peachland is just 20 minutes south of Kelowna — the Okanagan’s largest city, and 15 minutes north of Penticton.

A quaint, lakefront community, Peachland is an idyllic small town surrounded by natural beauty. The town hugs 11 kilometres of Okanagan Lake shoreline and the majority of housing is perched on mountainside benches with impressive views.

Rolling, tree-filled mountains, sun riped orchards and sprawling green vineyards serve as a backdrop for this small gem of a community.

Peachland’s jewel is its waterfront, with miles of pebble beaches and all accessible by the public. Centennial Way is a 13-block long public walkway, lined with vegetation, that has become a paradise for walkers, joggers and strollers.

The downtown core, which hugs the lakeshore, features boutique shops, numerous restaurants, parks and green spaces. It is the focal point of Peachland, where visitors spend much of their time and residents get together for community events.

Popular events include the New Years Day Polar Bear Swim, the World of Wheels Show and Shine in May, Canada Day celebrations, the annual fall fair and Christmas Light Up downtown, complete with Santa Claus.

An active community, Peachland boasts a large number of volunteers working for an impressive number of community organizations.

Life is simpler, a little more relaxed and oh so beautiful in Peachland.
