Peach Orchard Beach Park is one of Summerland’s most sought-after destinations for a hot summer day. This beautiful beachfront park sits on the west side of Okanagan Lake, just minutes from downtown Summerland. The crystal clear water, sandy beach, and large grassy areas make it a perfect place to sunbathe, swim, and enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities. This is one of the top 3 beaches in Summerland, so come experience it for yourself!
Peach Orchard is equipped with a variety of amenities, all playing their part in making it a slice of paradise. The park has several washrooms, picnic tables, and ample amounts of shade areas. The Spirit Square area is perfect for large group picnics, featuring a large covered gazebo and stage area. The square is only steps away from the children’s playground and splash park, making it easy to keep an eye on the kids. You’ll notice a boardwalk running parallel to the water’s edge, this 1.3km out-and-back path runs the length of the park, making for a perfect morning stroll. For those looking to take advantage of the water, there is a large swimming area and a floating dock which is popular for jumping off. On top of all this, Peach Orchard also features multiple large grassy areas, a volleyball court, and a boat launch. Does it get any better?
Location and Parking
Peach Orchard Beach Park is located on Lakeshore Drive just 5 minutes from downtown. There are plenty of parking spots adjacent to the park, but be mindful that these spots fill up fast in the summer. We recommend arriving early, bringing a cooler full of food and drinks, and spending the whole day here!
For those who are looking to maximize their time outdoors, the Peach Orchard Campground sits only 500 metres away from the beach, making it an ideal place to stay on your next Okanagan vacation.
