Glenmore is the place to be for those that want easy access to Kelowna’s shopping centre while staying far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. Development in Glenmore began in 1885 with Frederick Brent being one of the first settlers to receive a crown grant from the BC government. While in its early days was called “Starvation Flats” and “Dry Valley,” Glenmore gained its name after a contest was held to give it a more pleasant title, which went to two ladies that both submitted the name Glenmore. Glenmore is full of many homes and condos built from the 1950s to today with many providing a backyard pool. With access to many small parks, recreational centres, and only a short drive to Kelowna’s shopping centre and malls, Glenmore provides a high variety of homes built from the 1950s to today to give couples and families many options to find a place to call home.
