    Area Data

    Located on the stunning Lake Okanagan, Summerland is a small community just north of Penticton in the Okanagan Valley. Home to Summerland Ornamental Gardens, visitors can enjoy these stunning gardens year-round which includes magnificent views and glimpses of the staggeringly-high Trout Creek Rail Trestle and the canyon below. The Kettle Valley Steam Railway offers visitors a steam-powered rail tour that will delight both young and old. Fruit stands offering local produce are definitely worth stopping by as is a tour of Bottleneck Drive to sample some of the local wines, ciders, ales, sweet delights and more. Trails, watersports, beaches, golf and the stunning views from atop Giant’s head Mountain all offer lots to do.

    The Okanagan Valley is in south-central British Columbia, extending about 200 km north from the American border. Originally home to the Okanagan First Nations, cities in the region now include Vernon, Kelowna, Summerland and Penticton. The area is one of the largest producers of fruit and wine in Canada.

    The Okanagan Valley is one of the warmest regions in all of Canada. The Okanagan includes the cities of Kelowna, Penticton, Vernon and Osoyoos. During the summer months, visitors are offered countless sandy beaches, hot sun, and a variety of outdoor and water activities. Okanagan Lake provides the valley not only with excellent swimming but is also a spectacular backdrop to the golf courses and Okanagan wineries and popular ski resorts located in the rolling hills of this wine valley.

    Vegetation

    At lower elevations, the Okanagan Valley is characterised by open parkland vegetation dominated by ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, and bluebunch wheat grass. At higher elevations the forest is more closed, and western larch, western red cedar and lodgepole pine are found more frequently.

    History

    David Stuart, a Scottish fur trader employed by the Pacific Fur Company, is credited as the first European to see the valley in 1811. His cousin, John Stuart of the Hudson’s Bay Company, followed the trail in 1814 through the valley that continued to be used until 1847 by fur traders and later, miners. Missionaries built the first settlement at the head of Okanagan Lake in about 1840 and near Kelowna in 1859. Some miners stayed on after a small gold rush at Cherry Creek (50 km east of Vernon), as did a few of the Overlanders of 1862. Ranching in the northern valley was the first viable industry.

    The Okanagan Valley is roughly 200 km long and 20 km wide. It lies between the Columbia and Cascade mountain ranges in south-central British Columbia. Its landscape of low hills and oblong lakes was formed by glacial activity during the Pleistocene epoch, the final retreat of the ice between 11,000 and 9,000 years ago. The glaciers left large deposits of gravel, silt and sand on the bottom and sides of the valley. These sediments were eroded by water and wind, resulting in large alluvial fans (i.e., triangle-shaped deposits of sediment) and deltas such as those on which the cities of Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton partly stand; these sediments are now used for agriculture. The valley includes several lakes, all of which were once part of a large glacial lake. The largest of these lakes is Okanagan Lake. From east to west are Swan, Kalamalka and Wood lakes and to the south lie Skaha, Vaseux and Osoyoos lakes. The whole system drains south through the Okanagan River into the Columbia River.
