The development of the Wilden neighborhood began in the early 2000s, presenting Kelowna with a distinctive Craftsman style enclave that set it apart from anything seen before. This expansive and well-planned community has evolved over the years, maintaining its Craftsman charm while introducing exciting architectural surprises in the latest hot spots. Modern farmhouses and contemporary designs have become increasingly prevalent, enhancing the character of Wilden and adorning its steep streetscapes.
Situated within the Glenmore Highlands, much of Wilden features unique terrain, complemented by stunning lake vistas, frequent rock outcrops, hiking trails, and natural ponds. The area has become a favorite among dog walkers and family strollers. The introduction of pond-side townhomes and carriage homes has provided more affordable options for those aspiring to be part of the Wilden community. Additionally, a new elementary school and shopping area are soon to be unveiled in the Village of Wilden.
With neighborhood names like Skylands, Still Pond, and Hidden Lake, Wilden seamlessly blends with nature. Although much of the shopping and schooling activities for Wilden residents take place “down the hill” in North Glenmore, the latter offers an extensive array of amenities and educational options for residents of all ages.
