The Mission (Home to the YMCA H2O Adventure + Fitness centre) can be divided into Upper Mission, and Lower Mission.

West Kelowna Neighbourhoods

For those travelling from Vancouver, to the Okanagan Valley, you'll first encounter West Kelowna (Or "Westbank" as long-time residents call it). The municipality is located on the west side of Okanagan Lake. This area is best known for lake views, wineries and infamously, bridge traffic. This area offers a small town feel, but with quick access to all the amenities you'd want. It's close proximity to the downtown core of Kelowna mean easy access to the hustle and bustle of the city. Young families often pick West Kelowna as newer homes spring up around the area. It is a little slice of heaven found here in central British Columbia, Canada.


Other Neighbourhoods

Just a short drive from Kelowna, you'll find the neighbourhoods of Lake Country. This area's charm lies in its more small-town and rural feel with quiet streets, green spaces, sports fields, playgrounds, panoramic views of the stunning lakes and surrounding mountains, and large lots near orchards and vineyards, making it an ideal place for those who prefer a quieter lifestyle north of Kelowna. Real estate offerings here include single family homes, and increasingly townhomes and condos. And it's only a short drive to Kelowna for those desiring the convenience of a larger urban centre.
