Glen Canyon Regional Park is 74-hectares of land left in its natural state and  for conservation of the unique Okanagan ecosystems within.  It follows the flow of Powers Creek into Okanagan Lake.  The trail is not yet continuous, please respect private property.

 

Features:

  • Creekside flora and fauna
  • Dry grasslands and cliff faces with rocky outcrops and shrubs and summer wildflowers
  • Important wildlife corridor, largely undisturbed
  • Unique geological formations like the unusual stone columns, hoodoos and exposed sedimentary layers
  • Park trails allow access to views of Powers Creek flowing through deep canyons, forests and grassland slopes

Things to Do:

Glen Canyon Regional Park provides a variety of experiences from an easy walk on the historical flume trail to the steep and more challenging trails. The trail system also varies in development from the lower reaches below the highway with stairs, bridges and walking aids to the more rustic trails in the upper section above the highway.  Ensure you have appropriate clothing, footwear and equipment for hiking the trails.

Regional Parks Interpretive Programs are available by donation for school and community groups who'd like to learn about our local environment and cultural history.

History:

Historical sites include the Constable Neil Bruce Memorial at the Aberdeen Road entrance and an old irrigation flume system starting at the Blue Jay Road entrance to the park.
