Kelowna is a city on Okanagan Lake in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada. Its name derives from a native term for female grizzly bear.


It’s perfect lakeshore location in amongst the arid Okanagan valley (the northernmost reach of the Sonoran Desert), surrounded by orchards and vinyards, can give one the impression of being in the Mediterranean rather than in Canada.

Other places are: Kelowna Art Gallery, Kelowna Museum, Kelowna Marina on Okanagan Lake, Kasugai Gardens, an outdoor Garden beside City Hall built to celebrate friendship with its sister city; Kasugai, Japan.
