Peachland is a district municipality of approximately 5000 residents in the Okanagan Valley, on the west side of Okanagan Lake in British Columbia, Canada. It was founded in 1899 by John Moore Robinson, although the region had long been home to the Okanagan people. Peachland is approximately half an hour's drive south of the city of Kelowna and about a twenty minute drive north of Summerland. It is a growing community largely located on a steep sidehill with new residents coming from all across Canada. Located across from Peachland is Rattlesnake Island, home of the legendary Ogopogo. Peachland is approximately 370 km from Vancouver, British Columbia on the BC South Coast.
