Hunters Hill Honours the Rich Family History of Summerland

With the civil servicing and paving of Hunters Hill, Phase 3 now complete, the Hunters Hill Development announced the dedication of the roadway to its closest neighbour, Dickinson Family Farms.  As the newest road in the master-planned community, “Dickinson Place” sits at the pinnacle of the development, overlooking the orchards, vineyards and family homes seen below.  When complete, it will be home to several families who appreciate the small-town charm of the Summerland community.


The Road Dedication Event was attended by our friends at the Summerland Review.  Read below for the full story.

A new street in the Hunters Hill development is named in honour of a Summerland family.

On Dec. 1, the developers of Hunters Hill held a road dedication for Dickinson Place as they also announced the third phase of the development.

The street is named after the Dickinson family, who have farmed in the area since 1912.

The Hunters Hill development is on around 61 hectares of land in Summerland and will have 70 homes. At present, 40 have been constructed.

“A project of this scope is pretty much unheard of in Summerland,” said Patrick Murphy, one of the developers of Hunters Hill. “We’ve invested heavily into making this project a reality.”

Summerland mayor Doug Holmes said the development will be a closely-knit part of Summerland.

“It’s great to see a new neighbourhood joining the Summerland family,” he said. “We’re going to grow, these are the kinds of developments we need.”

“It really is an incredible addition to Summerland,” added Sally Pierce, executive director of the Summerland Chamber of Commerce.
