Joe Rich Neighbourhood

Live amongst the tall pines.

Just past Black Mountain on Highway 33, Joe Rich is a quiet rural area outside Kelowna's eastern boundary.

Set within a fire-protected forested region, Joe Rich features private and sparsely spaced homes and acreages ideal for those who wish to dwell in nature but be close enough to the city.

Only a short drive along Highway 33 to Big White Ski Resort and McCulloch Station Regional Park, the mountainous landscape makes Joe Rich a popular area for hiking, mountain biking, snowmobiling, skiing, and all-terrain vehicles.

Families also enjoy local amenities such as an outdoor ice rink, tennis court, playground, park, sports field, and community hall, available for family functions and events.
