Top five reasons to live in Wilden

Are you looking for the perfect place to settle down and call home?

You likely have a number of things you are considering during your search. Maybe you’re looking for a place in a family-friendly neighbourhood with access to recreational activities, good schools and nearby amenities.

<who>Photo Credit: Wilden </who>An excellent place to consider is Wilden. Its residents include parents who are raising their children, retirees enjoying life and couples taking the next step in life.

The mountainside development is growing to welcome more residents with its newest project: the beautiful Pondside Landing Townhomes, adding to the diverse collection of homes in Wilden.

Here are five of the top reasons to live in Wilden!

1. The community

Wilden is a tight-knit and family-friendly community made up of over 1,000 residents throughout its 14 neighbourhoods. Although Wilden covers a large area, the neighbours are close-knit, community-minded and look after each other.

Community members are friendly, conversational and welcoming. It’s common to chat with people on an evening walk, at community events or one of the playgrounds.

Kids have tons of friends to play with in their neighbourhood since Wilden is home to many families!

There is a Wilden Facebook Group that homeowners are encouraged to join where residents post about things happening in the area whether it's a missing dog or a heads up about a wildlife sighting.

Wilden is a place where people come to raise their children in a safe neighbourhood making it an excellent place to raise a family.

2. Easy access to hiking trails

Wilden’s developer prioritized maintaining an eco-friendly and nature-inspired community, which is why each home is near beautiful nature trails that are easily accessible year-round.

The Wilden development consists of roughly 1500 acres of partly forested land. City of Kelowna Park Trails are easily accessible from all of Wilden’s neighbourhoods and offer incredible viewpoints and exercise opportunities.

3. Stunning views

The mountain-side community boasts breathtaking views of Kelowna, Okanagan Lake, the many ponds within the neighbourhoods and the surrounding area.

Many residents experience the picturesque views from their patio or living room. Others enjoy the stunning views and vistas on an evening walk.

The new Pondside Landing Townhomes are spread along the edge of Still Pond and overlook the beautiful scenery of the pond, rock faces, and trees.

Homeowners will enjoy the calming ambience from their unique rooftop patio, master bedroom or modern open-concept living room, kitchen and dining room space.

Not to mention, the homes built in Wilden are aesthetically pleasing and energy-efficient far beyond current standards.<who>Photo Credit: Wilden </who>

4. Location

The location of Wilden is something many of its residents rave about. This small-pocket community is away from the hustle and bustle of central Kelowna, but close enough to make a quick trip to town if necessary.

Located in North Glenmore, Wilden is 10 minutes away from Downtown Kelowna, Kelowna International Airport and UBC Okanagan. There are excellent elementary schools nearby, and Wilden will be adding an elementary school to its neighbourhood in the future.

Many other amenities are less than 5 minutes away in Glenmore such as grocery stores, restaurants, the Kelowna Golf & Country Club and more.

5. Market Square and Wilden Elementary

Perhaps two of the most exciting updates coming to Wilden are Market Square and Wilden Elementary!

The proposed Market Square project will be located across the street from the Pondside Landing Townhomes on Union Road, right in the heart of Wilden.

<who>Photo Credit: Wilden </who>Wilden and its residents worked together to shape the vision of Market Square, which will involve parks, walking paths, ponds and nature.

Residents can anticipate a variety of locally owned businesses in Market Square such as fresh local food, coffee shops, bar & grill, health services and spas.

Next to Market Square will be Wilden Elementary School, a perfect addition to the community. Parents will be able to easily drive or walk their children to school!

Wilden’s central hub will grow greatly in the future giving the community convenient access to amenities, and more to experience and enjoy.
