Long Description:
Okanagan Lake is 135 km long and stretches from Vernon to the north and to Penticton to the south. The lake is home to the legionary Ogopogo.

During the summer, tourists and locals alike flock to the sandy beaches that border the lake. In the Kelowna area it is not uncommon to see 100s of sailboats on the lake.

All the murals are well done paying tribute to the artist's talent and creativity for any passersby to enjoy.

The murals are numbered and we will showcase
#8 – Okanagan Lake

Okanagan Lake

2901 31st Street

The lake has always been a major part of life in the Okanagan providing food, work, and leisure for the many residents of the area. On a clear summer’s day, sailboats can still be seen sailing on the waters of Okanagan Lake. Pictured is the only two mast sailboat available until modern times.

From the Okanagan Lake

The Downtown Vernon Association has invested considerable resources into the creation of the 27 amazing works of art that grace our downtown buildings. These murals depict the history, culture, scenery, and folklore that made Vernon what it is today.

The mural project was a multi-year collaborative effort that included youth employment, revitalization, and heritage conservation strategies.
