Fun In Summerland
Aug 27, 2013 / 10:08 am
This week, Picture the Okanagan invites you to enjoy a day of fun in Summerland! Whether you are with your family, alone, with friends, a refreshing hike around Garnet Lake will fill you with plenty of energy, quietness & breathtaking viewpoints on the emerald coloured lake in the middle of wilderness yet only steps away from town.
The road to get to the protected park is partly paved, partly gravel and is well maintained. There are washroom and picnic tables on site, and the parking lot is accessible just past the dam, at the south tip of the lake. While you explore the area, you’ll find yourself walking the oldest route of the Okanagan Valley, the Fur Brigade Trail, which goes through a beautiful pine forest with lots of clearing on the ground and interesting vegetation and features. Bring a lunch, and enjoy the sound of nature and everything the area has to offer!
On your way back to town, a stop to the Peach Orchard and Rotary Beaches is a must! Featuring a kids playground, picnic tables, doggy beach, volleyball court, a boat launch, docks and a pier, there’s countless things to be done for a full afternoon of fun in Summerland!
