Are You Thinking of Making a Move to Lake Country?
I know over the course of my last 18 videos I’ve covered off various topics about Kelowna. In today’s video I want to introduce you to an area just 15-20 minutes north of Kelowna called Lake Country.
Lake Country is a small community that is situated between Lake Okanagan to the west and Lake Kalmalka and Wood Lake to the east.
Now I have been writing and rewriting what I wanted to say about Lake Country but finally found that Tourism Kelowna captured it perfectly in their description which you can find on their website which I have linked up below:
“Home to three major lakes - Okanagan, Wood, and Kalamalka - below the lush valley hills, Lake Country has unparalleled natural beauty. Lake Country offers something for every member of the family. Fish or wakeboard on Wood Lake, hike Spion Kop, cycle the Okanagan Rail Trail, tour wineries along Lake Country's Scenic Sip Wine Route, explore working farms and orchards, visit a working artist, or zipline above the lakes and forest. Be sure to save some time to swim or simply relax on the beach and enjoy our warm Okanagan sun.”
Is Lake Country Part of Kelowna?
Lake Country is split up into three major areas that we refer to in our MLS, we have Lake Country Northwest, Lake Country Southwest and Lake Country Oyama. Lake Country North is located north of Okanagan Centre Road and ecompasses subdivisions west of Highway 97 all the way over to Okanagan Lake.
Lake Country South are the subdivisions south of Okanagan Centre Road East and is on the west side of Highway 9, again, taking you all the over to Lake Okanagan.
Now Lake Country Oyama subdivisions are east of Highway 97 at the south end of Wood Lake, they also move up the east side of wood lake all the way up to the south end of Lake Kalmalka.
I think it’s fair to say that Lake Country is kind of spread out. It is a beautiful area, there is no question and there are a lot of things to do, like I mentioned before.
What Schools are in Lake Country BC?
Lake country has all three levels of schools with Davidson Road and Peter Greer Elementary Schools, HS Grenda Middle and George Elliot High School.
If you’ve got kids that play sports, I can tell you that you will be driving…a lot.
From volleyball and basketball tournaments to baseball games and football games, a lot of those events and team sports take place in Kelowna.
Now you don’t always have to be on the highway as you can take Glenmore Road into the city which will spit you out close to UBCO and essentially along the northwest side of Kelowna (not to be confused with West Kelowna).
Overall I love Lake Country, in fact, when we were trying to decide which areas we wanted to move to in and around Kelowna, Lake Country was number 2 on our list.
If you like a quiet, slower paced, family friendly community, Lake Country ticks all the boxes.
If you are thinking of making a move to Lake Country, I would be happy to be your guide. You can give me a call at 778-716-7527 or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get the ball rolling.
