About the Neighbourhood

The Dorchester is located in North Kelowna, British Columbia, which includes the downtown business district and diverse residential districts, and is a short drive from most parts of the city. The surrounding area is primarily residential, though retail and services are available a block away or at Capri Centre Mall, a few blocks east. City Park on the shore of Lake Okanagan is about one kilometre west. Health care is readily accessible, and Kelowna General Hospital is just five minutes away.
