Kelowna is made up of several distinct neighbourhoods and communities, all of which add something uniquely their own to Kelowna's vibe. This Guide to the Landmark District is part of a series designed to give you an overview of the places you can discover when you #exploreKelowna.

Landmark District

Not far from downtown Kelowna, you'll find the Landmark District, a business-focused area that is also home to a host of amenities for locals and visitors alike. With convenient nearby accommodations, exploring this condensed Kelowna neighbourhood on foot is easy.

A 10- to 15-minute walk from the Landmark District will have you at Hyatt Place Kelowna, one of the city's newer properties, particularly suited to business travellers thanks to room configurations that include spacious workstations, flexible work and meeting spaces, and a well-equipped business centre. The hotel's indoor pool and whirlpool feature accessible electric chair lifts, so travellers of all abilities can access them. In addition to its Breakfast Bar and The Placery lobby bar, a seasonal rooftop lounge is open from May to October. 

Head west towards downtown Kelowna, and you'll find a handful of additional properties to choose from at varying price points:

Slightly east of the Landmark District are the Kelowna Ramada Hotel & Conference Centre and the Sandman Hotel & Suites Kelowna, both of which have onsite dining options and proximity to an array of amenities, including Orchard Park Shopping Centre, which is just across the street. 

Nearby B&B accommodations include A Touch of English, A Vista Villa Couples Retreat, and Quail's Inn

Whether you're stocking up the picnic basket or motorhome, or needing to stock your fridge for a longer stay or because you're local, there are several markets in and around the Landmark District.

After more than 20 years in its current location across from Orchard Park, the Kelowna Farmers' & Crafters' Market will be moving its outdoor marketing to the Landmark District in April 2024, bringing its array of fresh produce, pre-made products, and crafted goods from more than 100 Okanagan Valley vendors. During the winter months, from October to March, the market operates indoors in a smaller capacity at the Parkinson Rec Centre, every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In and Out Arabic Market stocks an array of Middle Eastern products, including Persian and Turkish eats, along with delicious ready-to-eat items like Shawarma, Ash Reshtesh (vegan Persian noodle soup), Lahmajoun (Middle Eastern flatbread), and more, while Limey, The British Shop, carries all tasty treats, drinks, crisps, condiments, and more from England. Choices Market is also nearby, with an assortment of fresh, local produce and organic goods. 

There are also numerous furniture and home goods stores in the area, along with specialty offerings like garden centres, yarn and needlecraft, consignment, and more.
