Peachland real estate guide & listings for sale
Peachland is fairly good for those who like quiet surroundings, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case close to Highway 97 South or Highway 97C. Green spaces aren't well-located, which makes them occasionally hard to reach. Still, there are around 40 parks close by for residents to enjoy.
The favoured method to navigate this part of the Kelowna metropolitan area is very often a car. It is a reasonably short drive to the nearest highway, such as Highway 97C, from any home in Peachland, and parking is generally easy. On the other hand, the public transit service in Peachland is not very frequent. Nevertheless, there are a few bus lines traversing the municipality. It is very challenging for people travelling on foot to navigate Peachland as carrying out daily needs is very difficult by walking.
