kid friendly beaches and U-Pick farms

by SimplyAngel123

Hi we're thinking of taking a trip to the Kelowna area to visit a nice sandy beach and hopefully to find an orchard or farm that offers u-pick for maybe strawberries or peaches?

I know about the park right in Kelowna along the lake but was wondering if anyone knows one that might not be quite as busy but is still easy to get to with young kids. My girls are 5 & 7 and don't like walking a long ways plus won't pee in bushes so we need at least an outhouse.

I know there are orchards that offer tours but I haven't been able to find much info on u-pick farms and what seasons carry what fruit. We're thinking August this year.

So any suggestions?

Strawberries are long, long, long gone.

Peaches grow on tall trees and you won't find anyone willing to let you/your kids wander alone in an Orchard that's full of pesticide, fungicide and herbicide.

Another view of the hike/bike Trail

by dabidc

As mentioned earlier the Old Kettle valley rail line meandered around quite a bit and this location is 40 kms south of Kelowna, as the crow flies, much further by road.

The trail is visible in the photo and even one of the tunnels is just visible in the centre of the photo above the tree line.

At this point the trail is above the lake and there are many excellent view points . Naramata is the end of the road and has a great sandy beach, a motel and guest houses in the area as well as several wineries on the 20 kms of road between Penticton and Naramata.

"Beware of the OgoPogo!"

The Ogopogo may be seen on Bernard Avenue by the lake near Kelowna's City Park. It is believed this creature is in the Okanagan Lake. The Interior Salish Native people started to report it more than 100 years ago. They named the monster N'ha-a-itk. The natives made animal sacrifices in hopes of appeasing the monster and thus protect themselves from attack as they crossed the waters in their canoes. It became knowns as the Ogopogo in 1942.
Lake Okanagan is 169 kilometres in length and has depths of almost 1,000 feet in some parts. It is not unreasonable to believe something large and unusual may lurk in the waters.

"Okanagan Lake"

Reports on the Okanagan Lake monster have been aired on U.S. television shows Unsolved Mysteries and Inside Edition, as well as on the Japanese program The World's Supernatural Phenomena. Nothing but fuzzy photographs have been snapped by those claiming to have seen Ogopo.
Maybe if you bring your camera, you will be the lucky one to prove to everyone this creature exists!
