Experience Summer in West Kelowna
The Westside (as the locals like to call it) has always been appreciated for its quiet beaches, rolling hills of orchards, and fantastic outdoor activities. The people here are proud of their rich history in agriculture, of the feisty Fur Brigade Traders and of their relationship with the Okanagan People. The small sleepy town that once was, has grown into a thriving independent city that has a ‘rural sophistication’ feel to it with vineyards, wineries, summer concerts, trails, agricultural pursuits, along with shops that offer the familiar comforts of home.
Are your teens looking for activities to do this summer and fall? Here are some ideas of things that they can do with their days, giving you the opportunity to enjoy some free time.
For some time in the sun, your teens can head down to the CNR Wharf, located in Gellatly Bay Park. The CNR Wharf features a zipline going off the dock into the water, and a platform to jump off into the lake. If your kids plan on taking the bus down, they can use the new 31 Gellatly bus route on weekends, which originates from the Westbank exchange and continues down along Gellatly Rd.
