Location

Westbank is located on Highway 97 near the western shore of Okanagan Lake in the Okanagan Valley, 16 km (10 mi) northeast of Peachland and 14 km (9 mi) southwest of Kelowna.

A Step Back in Time

Before the arrival of white settlers, the area was the home to the First Nations people in the Stekatkolxne’ut village, which overlooked Okanagan Lake. Fur traders in the early 1800s used the area as a stopping place, calling it MacDonald’s Plain, after a Hudson’s Bay Company officer. The settlement was renamed Westbank in 1908, due to its location on the west bank of Okanagan Lake and in 2007 was incorporated into the new City of West Kelowna along with the small communities of  Shannon Lake, Glenrosa, Casa Loma, West Kelowna Estates, Rose Valley and Lakeview Heights.
