Community gardens

Gardens help grow healthy communities. We have partnered with the Central Okanagan Community Gardens Society to provide community gardens within Kelowna. The gardens are located:

  • Ballou Garden (Glenmore)
  • Barlee Road (Kelowna Central)
  • Cawston Avenue (Downtown)
  • DeHart (Lower Mission)
  • Gibbs Road (Rutland)  
  • Hartman Road (Rutland) 
  • Lindahl Street (Kelowna Central)
  • Michaelbrook (Mission)
  • Parkinson Recreation Centre
  • St Paul Street (Downtown)
  • Sutton Crescent (Glenmore)

Community gardening is an activity for all ages and abilities. We support community gardening by providing land, while the Central Okanagan Community Gardens society coordinates the gardeners and plots.

Garden plots

Community garden plots can be rented for $15 per plot, per season (March to November). Irrigation water, compost bins and tools are provided at each garden site. Gardeners are encouraged to grow vegetables, herbs and flowering plants. It is each gardener’s responsibility to maintain their plot and surrounding areas using the principles of Integrated Pest Management. The use of pesticides is restricted in accordance with the City's Pesticide Bylaw.

Additional information about community gardening is available on the Central Okanagan Community Gardens website. Contact them if you are interested in renting a plot in an existing community garden or developing another community garden in your area.
