15 Feb McKinley Beach – Your New Home
This month, McKinley Beach is excited to welcome its first residents to the lakeside community. Construction began on the first homes last year with a number of on-site amenities being completed, including the marina, hiking trails, and beachfront cooking areas. This year, more and more residents will be joining the area as their homes are completed.
If you’re looking to build a new home, McKinley Beach is a community well worth considering. An authentic contemporary community with warm West Coast architecture nestled within an unparalleled natural setting, McKinley Beach truly represents the best of the Okanagan Valley in one beautiful location.
The beachfront will feature a storage facility for your water toys and the new private marina ensures your boat is safe and accessible at all times. The cliffs on site have been set up with climbers in mind. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or new to climbing, the cliffs will provide a challenge, though climbers should always have a professional on hand for supervision and safety.
The hiking and biking trails will cover over 20 kilometres of the development lands offering stunning vistas and easy to moderate terrain to navigate and explore.
A natural outdoor gym is one of the many innovative amenities that sets the community apart. Whether you complete your hike with a short workout, are setting new health goals, or just maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle, the gym is a great place to start or end your day.
As for Kelowna itself, there are a number of things that make the Okanagan Valley’s largest city a desirable place to live. A vibrant and consistently growing technology sector that’s attractive to both employers and employees is just one of the reasons so many people relocate to the area.
For those looking to attend school or teach, the University of British Columbia Okanagan campus is located only a few minutes from the McKinley Beach community. UBCO is a state-of-the-art centre for research and learning with a thriving on-site campus, and a large health-studies facility at the Kelowna General Hospital.
For outdoor enthusiasts, there’s never a lack of something to do in Kelowna. Throughout the valley you can find 45 golf courses, over 160 camping areas, and a total of 65 scenic provincial parks.
Kelowna’s downtown core is located a short 15 minute drive from the McKinley Beach community. Bernard Avenue plays host to a variety of local and well-known restaurants and bars offering a variety of great food and beverages. You can also find an arts and cultural district featuring galleries, theatres, and outdoor performances. Shoppers will also delight at the selection of name-brand stores and the unique boutique shopping experience offered by the downtown area.
