Chichester Wetland Park
This hidden gem is situated within the heart of the Rutland Community and is a great example of a small remnant wetland. Wetlands are extremely rare in the arid Okanagan environment, comprising only about .02 percent of the land base.
This park includes a stretch of path that encircles a central pond landscape. The central pond is home to painted turtles and has been rehabilitated with additional native trees. Love birds? This park is home to many species of breeding and migratory birds.
How to get there: The park can be accessed off of Chichester Court or Sumac Road West at 250 Sumac Rd West in Rutland. Dogs allowed on-leash only.
