First thing we got to do was hold baby kangaroos. They were so adorable! Staff/volunteers are super friendly and give a ton of info. Learned a lot! There were so many other animals as well. Will definitely be coming back in the future

I heard they just got bought and hope nothing changes too much. Very relaxed and friendly tasting session. Found out about a new grape and enjoyed hearing about their history.

Arrowleaf Cellars

Reviewed By Vancouver_Roary - Vancouver, Canada

This was our 2nd stop during our tour of Lake Country wineries. This is the first time we've visited Arrowleaf Cellars.
Tasting Room: Large, clean and modern. Gorgeous view.
Wine: Good.
Service: Good.
Family Friendly: Not really. They had some coffee table books at one of the tables, so we just flipped through those together. There was some picnic space outside where they could run around a bit.
Overall, some good wines. Recommended for adults only. Not recommended for families.

Intrigue Wines

When we were deciding what to call our winery we wondered; "What is it about wine that captivates us, that keeps us coming back for more, and that still interests us after all these years?"Some people like to know where the wine comes from. Others like to know who made it or how it will change with time. The foodies want to know what flavours they will find in their glass and how it will pair with a certain dish.We're all intrigued about wine. It's constantly changing and evolving. That is part of the excitement and allure of winemaking.We came together as partners out of a passion for wine. The strength of the partnership is in the complimentary experience that each of us brings to the table. A winemaker, an accountant, an internet entrepreneur and a business advisor

This is a small winery that offers taste testing at a very reasonable price. There is no tour and the scenery isn't that great compared to some other wineries in the area. They do have a good little gift shop. Wines were delicious and the staff are friendly. Lots of free parking.

Fancy winery with tastings for a reasonable price. Didn't care much for the wine but everyone has different tastes. Staff are friendly and the scenery is nice. They try to be different with their decor.

Beasley Park

Reviewed By Verdi-Girl - BC, Canada

This is a great park for any age category, but especially families with young children. Here are the highlights:
- Soccer fields
- Well-equipped playground
- Gazebo shelter for picnicing (covered)
- Bathroom access (closed in the off-season)
- Sandy beachfront
- Waterfront trail
- Beautiful old chestnut trees: great to collect in the mid-late fall
Downsides:
- Goose poop on the grass and beach
- Sometimes we've gotten swimmer's itch from this beach
- Water can be clear after a good wind, but if there haven't been winds to stir up the water for a long time it can be a little murky.
Overall, a beautiful park.

Step back in time at the historic Lake Country Museum!Established in 1985, the Museum is located in the former Okanagan Centre School. Through its exhibits and archives, the Museum tells the story of the District of Lake Country and its four wards of Winfield, Oyama, Carr’s Landing, and Okanagan Centre. The Museum’s artifacts include the histories of the orchard, wine, and ranching industries, turn of the century living, and collections from the early Japanese community.

A terrific young, personable & knowledgable young man "Zach" gave us a wonderful journey through a small museum that shares a wealth of history in such a simplified interesting fashion. Well worth the stop & the informative tour by Zach. The ice cream next door will definitely make the stop worthwhile.
