Looking for a place to spend the day with family? From hiking, playing, and swimming Fintry Provincial Park has it all!

Swimming and Playing:
Are you looking to build sandcastles, and swim with your new favourite floatie that you picked up from LaCasa Market? Our beautiful Lake Okanagan surrounds each area of Westside Road, and you can enjoy the beauty of the lake while in it. Follow Fintry Delta Road all the way down to the parking lot where you will find a beach, picnic tables, and public washrooms for you and your family to enjoy.

Exploring Fintry Falls:
As you drive across the bridge entering Fintry Provincial Park there will be parking on the left side of Fintry Delta Road (note: currently there is some construction going on so parking may be limited) once parked you will see a few of the many heritage houses. As you begin walking up the staircase the beautiful flowing falls will appear. The hike is listed as “easy” and is made for all ages – the climb is worth the view. Instructions to find Fintry Falls can be found here!

Fintry Playground:
Recently added to the beautiful Fintry Provincial Park was a playground, picnic table and grass area to enjoy. Follow the road past the campsites towards the lake to find the newly added playground area for the entire family to enjoy.

Paddle Boarding and Kayaking on Lake Okanagan is a must! Don’t have one? No worries – we offer rentals visit our rental page or our booking page to see what we have available!

See you at the lake!

Spotlight on Fintry Provincial Park

 

Fintry is a beautiful provincial park right on La Casa Cottage Resort’s doorstep! Only a five-minute drive to the main trails, this park is the perfect way to stretch your legs (between BBQs on the deck and swims in the lake of course!)

There are two walks easily accessible at Fintry park – each quite different from one another. The first walk takes you on a flat path around the historical elements of the park.  See old buildings, farm sheds and packing houses!  The second route is a little more challenging as it involves climbing around 400 stairs.  However, if you do make it to the top you will get to see astounding views of the waterfalls!

Self-guided tours can be downloaded from the BC Parks website, but here are our highlights from both routes:

  • The Manor House:

    Fintry Manor House is a stunning home originally built around 1910. Check out the white stone walls and large verandah! There are also gardens that surround the house, equipped with nostalgic features such as an old sundial and a traditional labyrinth.

  • The Octagonal Dairy Barn:

    The name says it all! This barn has 8 sides and is the only one of its kind in British Columbia. Due to it’s interesting shape and layout, this site is ideal for taking a couple of selfies!

  • The Waterfalls:

    Who doesn’t love a good waterfall? With a viewing spot every third of the way up, you can take your time and enjoy the views as you meander up this taxing set of stairs!
