Pickleball At Lakestone

Pickleball is a fast-growing sport played right here at Lakestone. People are becoming pickleball-obsessed with a game that can be described as a combination of tennis, racquetball and ping pong.

The sport inspiring community members of all skill levels and ages to come out is played on a court similar in size to a doubles badminton court. Like any other racket sport, players use paddles to volley a ball back and forth over a net. It is a fairly gentle sport, especially compared to higher impact games such as tennis. However, it is not low-cardio; this game can be a great workout!

Try your hand at pickleball at the courts located across from the Information Centre at 9678 Benchland Drive in the Benchlands’ community.

Awarded Development of the Year

Lakestone has been awarded the National Award for ‘Community Development of the Year’, and was also recognized for one of the Best Sales Centres in Canada at the Canadian Home Builders Association 2020 National Awards for Housing Excellence. The prestigious competition recognizes the best in Canadian new homes and community development with over 700 entries received from coast to coast.


This ‘Development of the Year’ award acknowledges the strong commitment Macdonald Communities Ltd., Developer of Lakestone, has for creating communities with an active rural lifestyle in an amenity-rich urban environment.

The architecture of the Sales Centre is “contemporary park board”, recalling the structures often found in historic parks. An outdoor terrace provides vantage points to all neighborhood amenities while inside guests glean the Developer story and the Masterplan, site influences and infrastructure, lot availability and pricing.

Hiking Trails of Lake Country

Lake Country has so much to offer the hiker who’s looking to get outside and connect with nature. From Lakestone’s hiking paths to community waterfront multi-use pathways, these hiking trails let you explore the most beautiful regions of Lake Country:

Lakestone Trails: A 28.8 km network of excellent hiking trails runs from the lake shore to Summit Park, spanning a 300-metre grade. Views from the summit are panoramic. With Duck, Wood and Kalamalka Lakes to the east, and Okanagan Lake to the north, west and south, these vistas are truly unparalleled in the Okanagan Valley. A series of trail head markers at specific entry points serve to orientate hikers so they can navigate specific routes throughout the site.

Okanagan Centre Beach Park Trail: Stroll the beach path along Okanagan Lake while trekking through ponderosa pine trees. These trees are a food source for birds and attract raptors who perch high above.

Spion Kop: The beautiful Spion Kop recreation area offers a diverse mix of adventures that range from easy strolls to difficult hikes. Currently Crown Land, over 350 hectares is home to 7 marked trails that will keep you exploring all summer long!

Okanagan Rail Trail: On the east side of Wood Lake, this four season playground connects Okanagan communities. Not just for hiking, the 52 km trail (when complete) is a great wide path to be enjoyed by the biking enthusiast too!

Pelmewash Parkway: This multi-use pathway on the waterfront of Wood Lake is a continuous route from Winfield to Oyama and connects to the Okanagan Rail Trail.

More trails in the Okanagan

Visions of linking the Okanagan by a fully connected cycling and hiking trail is gaining much enthusiasm. The trail will get cyclists off the highway and open up safe access to the small parks along the lake. It will connect communities between Sicamous and the US Border at Osoyoos.

Okanagan Rail Trail efforts have made tremendous progress in developing a linear pathway from Kelowna to Vernon. Efforts by the Shuswap North Okanagan Rail Trail Society to develop a linear pathway from Vernon to Sicamous are well underway. And the Gellatly Bay and Parks Society is active in pathway promotion from the Bennett Bridge to Peachland. The Trail of the Okanagans Society vision is to link these efforts south to the US Border.
