Take a gander through Kelowna

Walking tours are starting July 6 through the cultural district

Once the centre of the Okanagan Fruit Packing Industry, downtown Kelowna’s cultural district is now home to artists, performers and beautiful works of public art.

Take a journey through time and discover the cultural district in a new light with a guided walking tour this summer.

The tours run from July 6 to Aug. 26, on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Following a two-kilometre route that begins and ends at the Laurel Packinghouse, explore the rich history of the area, hear stories of the past and present, and explore cultural facilities and parks including Kasugai Gardens, the Okanagan Heritage Museum, and the Kelowna Art Gallery.

Registration is not required and all tours are free.

“Guided tours are popular with visitors to Kelowna,” said cultural services manager Sandra Kochan. “But even long-time residents will experience some new discoveries about their home town. Our guides are, above all, great storytellers who connect the past with the present.”

Enjoy a morning stroll alongside a friendly guide and discover the cultural district. Tours take approximately two hours and depart at the Laurel Packinghouse at 10 a.m. Remember to bring comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen and a hat.
