Amenities and Activities at The Hamlets at Vernon

Vernon, BC, borders three lakes: Okanagan Lake, Kalamalka Lake, and Swan Lake. The Hamlets at Vernon is located near these lakes and several parks like N’kwala Park or Sawicki Millenium Park. These locations are great for swimming, fishing, nature watching, beachcombing, or metal-detecting. You can also rent boats or bring your own. The Hamlets at Vernon is also near the Allan Brooks Nature Centre, which has some guided outside tours on the grassland.

In addition to the shopping, parks, and restaurants close by, our residential care community within a community offers so much within. Our goal is to support those looking to find a community that can support them in their daily walk through life, whatever their activity level, medical or care level needs.
