Downtown Kelowna Neighbourhood

Locally-owned restaurants, water-front walks, Bernard Avenue shopping, and so much more!

As multi-family and multi-use residential and commercial projects continue to rise, and infrastructure continues to evolve, Downtown Kelowna residents enjoy every possible recreational and urban amenity.

Live the lakeshore lifestyle by walking, running or biking along the boardwalk between beautiful sandy beaches and green spaces. Bring your boat or stand-up paddleboard and get the best shoreline view. Shop in chic boutiques, view contemporary art, learn about local history or catch a live performance. Dine on delicious multi-ethnic cuisine washed down with a taster from one of the many microbreweries and wineries.

When you live in Downtown Kelowna, it’s all at your doorstep.

Lora + Christy's Take

"This area is one of our fastest growing neighbourhoods. High-rises are gracing the skyline and UBC Okanagan will be opening a campus in the coming years. Interior Health has its main hub on Ellis Street as well. Prospera Place hosts events, concerts and the Kelowna Rockets. A brilliant choice to invest in."
