West Kelowna Real Estate
With West Kelowna, Westside, and Westbank all being the names of areas across Lake Okanagan from Kelowna it can be a little confusing for the newcomer! There’s the local government District of West Kelowna which covers a number of different communities on the west side of the lake, including Glenrosa, Shannon Lake,Smith Creek, Westbank, and Lakeview Heights and has become very popular with families and retirees.
Good Variety of Shopping Stores
Westbank has become the bustling heart of West Kelowna with numerous new big box stores, large grocery stores, cinema, banks, home improvement stores, restaurants, fast food establishments, and more all being constructed along the Highway 97 corridor. This new development is great for all residents of West Kelowna as you no longer need to travel across the lake to Kelowna for these things. Despite the development, Westbank still has parks and open spaces, and a very good assortment of homes from condos and multi-family units to single family homes. There are several different schools, catering to all students from Kindergarten to senior, including French Immersion options, and downtown Westbank also has more shops and culture.
Public Parks and Hiking Trails
The shores of Lake Okanagan are easy to get to and there’s plenty of recreation in Westbank too including golf courses, a skatepark, public parks, and many places to enjoy a walk. West Kelowna’s Westbank is a great place to live whether you’re a family, young professional, or retiree.
