Peachlander or not, taking in the picture-perfect views of everything from Penticton to Kelowna is an amazing way to spend your Sunday.
Bring along a walking stick and plenty of water, because this trail can be steep at some parts, and is generally dry and gravelly. You may run into some wildlife along the way, too!
Don’t forget to bring your camera, you’re going to want to snap photos with the iconic Canadian flag and the breathtakingly picturesque view in the background.
The venture can take around an hour, but if you get tired there are rest stops along the way.
Locals know that Heritage Park and Pier are the loveliest places in the area.
Ray Kandola Heritage Pier is the perfect way to get a prime view of the lake and surrounding mountains. The pier is wheelchair-accessible and therefore offers tourists of all abilities the opportunity to take in exquisite, unobstructed views of Peachland.
The pier is made up of high-quality Douglas Fir stretching along the charming Peachland shoreline for around 400 feet.
The pretty park offers plenty of amenities including washrooms, a public square with picnic areas, benches, a playground and a Bat Interpretive Trail which educational stroll that highlights bats, their importance to our ecosystem, and how we can best support and nurture them.
It’s the perfect place to bring the family for a peaceful Sunday to enjoy your fare from the Farmers Market.
