Shannon Lake


Leave the city buzz behind in Shannon Lake, a quiet, family-friendly community nestled in the northwest corner of West Kelowna. A variety of housing options, lower price points and peace and quiet lure many here, and it’s easy to see why – kids can play along tree-lined streets, and there are plenty of places to walk, ride and explore nature. Conveniences from grocery stores and farmer’s markets, to big-box retailers and of course, the beach are all minutes away. Come see why so many cross the bridge to discover their Okanagan dream in Shannon Lake! 

Family fun: Shannon Lake Regional Park (accessible from Shannon Lake Rd.) offers plenty of wide-open spaces. Walking trails are flat and perfect for strollers and bikes. A floating dock was installed last year, and every spring, kids 15 and under can take part in the free Go Fish program. During that time, volunteers are around to help young anglers get their first bite. No license required!

Adult fun: The Mount Boucherie area is chock-full of adult delights, mostly vineyard-related, but if you’re in for some pre-wine adventure, why not hike the mountain? Start at Eain Lamont Community Park (off Lakeview Cove Rd.), find a trail, and see if it takes you to the top!

Did you know? Tens of millions of years ago, Mount Boucherie was a volcano. The mountain’s yellow, tan and pink hues are thanks to rhyolite and andesite, which are types of volcanic rock.
