The lands around Goats Peak hold significant value to the Okanagan First Nations people. In the 1800's early European settlers used nearby lands as a means of transporting goods for the Hudson’s Bay Company. The Gellatly Family grazed their angora goats in the area in the early 1900's, giving rise to the park’s name. The land for Goats Peak Regional Park was acquired by the Regional District in 2014 (View Announcement Ceremony Video). The Regional Board approved the Goats Peak Regional Park Management Plan in 2016. It will guide development over the next 20 years. The goal is to protect the unique ecosystem, while providing passive recreation opportunities and connections to neighbouring trails and existing/future parks.
Goats Peak Regional Park is located on Seclusion Bay Rd near the exits to Highway 97C the Okanagan Connector.
