Living at its Best'
District of Coldstream is located right next door to the city of
Vernon. In Coldstream the motto is 'Rural
Living at its Best.'
Personally, it's hard to argue with that statement. Situated by
the north end of Kalamalka Lake your chances of living a relaxing
rural lifestyle in Coldstream are pretty much guaranteed.
Large sprawling lots, large houses and access to a wide range of
recreational pursuits are what you expect to find in Coldstream.
By having Kalamalka Lake right at your doorstep, the summer fun
never seems to end.
Two spots to try are the public beach located on Kalamalka
Lake Provincial Park and Kal Beach on Kalamalka lake Road.
Then, as fall and winter come round, the boarding and skiing available
at Silver Star is second to none.
Close by to Coldstream going east is the beautiful Coldstream Valley.
Up here you will find the small communities of Lavington
This is spectacular country with Mabel Lake and the Shuswap River
all within your reach. Going east of Lumby on Hwy 6, the Monashee
is a large mountain range with excellent hiking opportunities.
Living and having Vernon as a close neighbour, Okanagan Lake is
quite accessible from Coldstream. One excellent park you might want
to look at for swimming and recreational boating is Ellison Provincial
This park located in Vernon features sunken wrecks, schools of fish
and sandy beaches. The snorkeling and scuba diving are excellent.
Make sure you take good walking shoes; Ellison
Provincial Park has some excellent hikes but can be dangerous
because of the steep bluffs that surround the bays.
