Upper Mission


The Upper Mission is the Southernmost neighbourhood in the City of Kelowna and therefore offers a tranquil community with little through traffic that is highly sought after. It encompasses the land South of Barnaby Road where there is a junction with Lakeshore Road and Chute Lake Road, from the lakeshore on the West to Bellevue Creek on the East, and up the hillside to the South where residential development is expected to continue for many more years. This neighbourhood truly backs onto the backcountry (fishing lakes, hiking, snowshoeing, mountain biking, hunting, ATV and snowmobile trails), sitting at the edge of Kuiper’s Peak and not far from Myra Canyon, Okanagan Mountain Park, and Little White Mountain. It’s the perfect place for families or anyone that wants to be active outside. The Upper Mission has plenty of greenspace with more local parks, mountain parks, and regional parks. Just a little ways up the Bellevue Creek are the picturesque Crawford Falls, after which the areas soon to be built middle school has been named.

The Upper Mission also has one elementary school with a middle/secondary school just minutes away in the Lower Mission neighbourhood at the bottom of the hillside. There are currently few local amenities, with only a small retail/commercial centre in the Village of Kettle Valley area of the neighbourhood. There are plans for the development of additional commercial space in The Ponds Development on the other side of the neighbourhood. For now, all the other amenities including: shopping, banking, restaurants, coffee shops, and more, are just a quick 10-minute drive away in the Lower Mission neighbourhood.

There is a separate page for the Village of Kettle Valley as it is very much a unique community within this larger neighbourhood. It was developed around a central greenspace which contributes to the communities dozen parks. Much of the homes in Kettle Valley have architecture with traditional influences and many of the homes offer 180-degree views of Okanagan Lake.
