From downtown Kelowna, the Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park is a short 25 minute drive up into the surrounding hillside through rolling vineyards and past several amazing lookout points. The road is partially paved, while the last eight kilometers are grated dirt road and quite rugged. As such, a vehicle with a higher clearance is recommended (our SUV worked well). Although we did see many cars make the trip, slower driving is a must to ensure you don’t bottom out on some of the bigger potholes. As for signage, the road is clearly marked with blue signs directing visitors to the Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park and making navigation simple.

In the town itself we could see was tree filled and riddled with cool old brick buildings. It also features a plethora of outdoor splendor from hillside hikes to rivers, streams and parks on all sides. We had come mostly to visit my mom, who moved here last fall, but will find the place difficult to leave after just 2 weeks, especially since I’ve only been able to ride my new bike for an hour or so on 2 days. It does however look awesome in the back of the truck, making everyone jealous of our cool toys haha. We’ve been going to my moms after work on most evenings and it’s so awesome that its now getting dark around 10pm! We may just now be getting our summer weather but at least we can still enjoy it after work! Why doesn’t it get dark at this every night of the year! Work week is over for me. time to ride my bike and have a BBQ!!
