Centre maps out recreation activities

The Penticton and Wine Country Visitor Centre is busily preparing for one of its most exciting seasons yet. A great feature for this season is our unique and comprehensive Outdoor Recreation map. This map offers topographical representation of the South Okanagan with hiking/biking trails, sites for bird-watching, scuba diving, and much more.

This year, the Meadowlark Festival will be co-ordinating many of its annual events from the parking lot of the Wine Country Visitor Centre.  Be sure to visit the Vancouver Aquarium’s AquaVan on Saturday in the parking lot.
