In the southern region of Kelowna South is the Pandosy “Village by the Lake” just passed Wardlaw Avenue on Pandosy Street.

In his honour, Kelowna built the Father Pandosy Mission attraction on Benvoulin Road with fantastic log structures popular for wedding photos. The village itself is full of small businesses, restaurants, and social pubs to provide locals with a small-town feeling with many active walkers shopping from store to store.
