Welcome to North Glenmore in Kelowna.
This neighborhood is a family-oriented area of Kelowna with excellent schools and amenities. Glenmore Road runs down the center of the Valley and extends North all the way to Lake Country. Glenmore Road is four-lane from Hwy 97 all the way to Union Road which is one of the main access roads into Glenmore Highlands and the Wilden neighborhood.
Established neighborhoods are found along the west side of Glenmore road with more farmlands and estate style home on the east side of Valley Road. The University of BC Okanagan will soon be accessed via John Hindle Drive which also provides access to the Kelowna Landfill and recycling center. This will undoubtedly provide more building incentive for the North End of the valley as UBC continues to grow.
