Learn More About Peachland, British Columbia
Peachland is a district municipality of over 5000 residents in the Okanagan Valley. It is located on the west side of Okanagan Lake in British Columbia, Canada. It was founded in 1899 by John Moore Robinson, although the region had long been home to the Okanagan people. Peachland is approximately half an hour's drive south of the city of Kelowna and about a twenty-minute drive north of Summerland. The Okanagan Valley is very narrow in this area, and there are few terraces which mark former lake levels and the former lake bottom. As a result, the city is largely located on a steep sidehill. Like many areas in the Okanagan, Peachland is a rapidly growing community with new residents coming from all across Canada. Located across from Peachland is Rattlesnake Island, home of the legendary Ogopogo. Peachland is approximately 370 km from Vancouver, British Columbia on the BC South Coast.
