    Vernon Neighbourhoods

Alexis Park

The area west of 34th Street to the base of the hill and from 35th Avenue to 43rd Avenue. A mostly residential neighbourhood including several townhouse developments. Conveniently located close to Kin Race Track, the Multiplex, the Recreation Centre, Curling Rink, the Performing Arts Centre and shopping.

Bella Vista

Properties west of Agnew Road over to where Bella Vista Road connects to Tronson Road on both sides of Bella Vista Road with the exception of Westmount. A mixed farm, orchards, vineyards and residential area encompassing beautiful views of Okanagan Lake and the picturesque hills and valley. There is much speculation that Bella Vista will grow substantially in the next two decades. An area with lots of future real estate potential.

BX (North/South)

A predominantly rural area which is only minutes from town and 15-20 minutes to Silver Star Mountain Resort. The BX is divided into North and South for real estate marketing purposes, but the area effectively skirts along the eastern boundary of the City of Vernon. The south boundary is Highway 6 and Swan Lake intersection is the north boundary. The BX contains much of the ALR land in the Greater Vernon area. A great area with a good elementary school. There is much speculation that the BX will one day be annexed by the City.

Coldstream

A highly desirable single-family residential area that borders on Kal Lake to the south, Highway 97 to the west, Lavington to the east and Highway 6 (Vernon) to the north. Coldstream's rural feel and proximity to the lake and huge provincial park make it a favourite for active young families. Coldstream continues to grow, especially around Middleton Mountain where there is much new construction. Schools in this area are excellent, and many homes have beautiful lakeviews.

East Hill

The area east of 27th Street, north of Highway 6 to BX Road, above Pleasant Valley Road and below Pleasant Valley Road to Silver Star Road, then east to the easterly boundary of the City of Vernon. An extremely popular area due to its central location, quality homes and some heritage homes. Although most homes in the area were built between 1950 and 1985, East Hill boasts some newer subdivisions north of 43rd Avenue. The area contains a few duplexes, but most dwellings are single family residential. Schools for this area include Silver Star Elementary, Hillview Elementary and Vernon Senior Secondary.

Foothills

A sub-division of new and newer homes just off of Silver Star Road in the North BX. Although geographically located in the BX, the Foothills is part of the city of Vernon, and pays City taxes. Even the fire protection comes from Vernon. The Foothills is surrounded by the BX (which is part of the Regional District of the North Okanagan) on all sides. Silver Star Road links it to the City proper. In terms of housing, the lower roads contain housing inventory constructed in the early to mid 1990s. As one goes further up the hill, the housing inventory gets newer. It is a 15 minute (approx.) drive to Silver Star Mountain Resort from the Foothills, and 10 minutes or less to major shopping. Most homes enjoy fabulous views. Many see all three lakes. Night views are spectacular.

Harwood

The area between 27th Street, the overpass, 39th Avenue, and Pleasant Valley Road to Silver Star Road. It is enjoying an increase of interest in buyers as it is located towards the north end of town which is where the bulk of the shopping facilities are. That includes the Village Green Mall, Walmart, Great Canadian Super Store, Rona and much more.

Mission Hill

The area bounded by 32nd Street, the south side of Vernon Creek, along Okanagan Avenue to Bellevue Drive and South to the Commonage. Mission Hill consists of single-family dwellings (many with suites), duplexes and some apartments. Some properties are on secluded cul-de-sacs and quiet streets and some have city and lakeviews. Mission Hill is close to the hospital and downtown and there is a good elementary school in the area.

Okanagan Landing

The area in and around the north-eastern arm of Okanagan Lake. A real mix of housing types from lakefront properties on Tronson and OK Landing Roads, to manufactured homes in several popular parks. All kinds of recent developments here. From townhouses to apartments, to strata communities and tourist commercial. Overall, an area with lots of future potential. The Landing is definitely an area to keep in mind for investment purposes. Boaters and beach-goers will also appreciate the Landing. Beaches include Paddlewheel Park and Kin Beach. The Vernon Yacht Club and Blue Heron Pub and Marina are located here.

South Vernon

There are many multi-unit properties here, including townhouses and duplexes. There is certainly potential for rental income in this area. The newer section of South Vernon, which is closer to Fulton, and the area between Okanagan Avenue and Vernon Creek, south from the intersection of 43rd Street and Okanagan Landing Road to Graham Park. There are quite a few rental units close to Schools, which provides a good family area. The area is generally flat and there are several cul-de-sacs.

Vernon City

The remainder of the City of Vernon excepting the above mentioned sub areas and Okanagan Landing. A real conglomeration of housing and zoning, ranging from older houses to duplexes and apartments. Centennial Drive, 30th Avenue & 27th Avenue areas are popular with seniors as they are close to downtown shopping & the Schubert Centre.

Westmount

The area south of Bella Vista Road to 27th Avenue and from Heritage Drive to Richfield Place. A favoured family area. Schools are Ellison Elementary and Fulton Secondary. Both schools are quite new. Located approximately mid point between Okanagan Lake and downtown. A great little strip mall near the junction of 27th Avenue and Okanagan Landing Road enhances the shopping in this area.
