Blossoms are better in a small town, beaches are best in a small town, and biking is great along the quiet country roads of a
small town BURSTING with orchards & vineyards.
Welcome to Summerland, located between Kelowna & Penticton and across the lake from Naramata.
Summerland is cherished for its natural beauty and small town atmosphere. Farmers markets, car shows, parades, festivals and sporting events are the perfect opportunities to stroll downtown and catch up with friends, new and old. The Okanagan Valley's "Finest Main Street" is the place to be for quaint shops & welcoming restaurants.
Summerland is defined by an absence of traffic & crowds. With a strong sense of community and friendly welcoming locals, it is a place where agriculture is the primary industry, and tourism a close cousin.
Summerland's meandering country roads call out for long walks, jogging or bike rides bounded by orchards, vineyards, farms and roadside stands.
Its time… to own your place in the Okanagan!
Some of the Lake's best beaches are here in Summerland.
They are family friendly and not crowded.
Other recreation amenities include a waterfront tennis club, a hockey arena & curling club, 2 golf courses, aquatic center, walking paths and biking trails.
The biking and hiking trail upgrades planned or underway are impressive! From the Fir Brigade Trail, to the lakeside Bike trail already complete, to the family bike trail to Garnet Lake Recreation Area, and the Trans Canada Trail,
Summerland is a hub of all season recreation options.

TRAILS TO HIKE, TRAILS TO BIKE, TRAILS TO WALK!
Trace the six-thousand year old footsteps of the First Nations people as you overlook a beautiful green lake cloaked by deep forest, towering scree slopes and fallen trees draped in fern: This is Garnet Lake!
The trailhead begins here, if you drive, but, really, you should bike through scenic Garnet Valley, passing farms and ranches and burlap colored hills covered in Ponderosa Pine, Fir and Poplar Groves.
The first 5 kilometers or so is paved with bike lane, and the last 3 km is a maintained gravel road past the dam at Garnet Lake. Interpretive signs will guide the way to lookout point for incredible sweeping views of Okanagan Lake.
Groups of fur traders in the early 1800’s traversed this trail. Garnet Lake was a major encampment and is now a fifty acre Historic Park named “Priest Camp”, which is the only preserved encampment and trail site of the historic Okanagan Brigade Trail.
You can view a representation of the historic meeting between the fur traders and the Aboriginal people of southern BC in a superb mural on Main Street Summerland.
What an experience, enjoy. For more into, contact the Summerland Chamber of Commerce.
