Spanning over 480 hectares, the area combines residential, tourist commercial and nature recreational uses that the Okanagan is best known for.

The neighbourhood welcomes both year-round and seasonal residents.
Real estate properties are abundant in Predator Ridge, primarily in the form of single-family houses, multi-family homes such as townhomes and rowhomes, strata apartment properties and cottages. Properties are built with great consideration towards the area's natural landscape, providing spectacular views and respect for the natural environment. Wesbild, a prominent real estate developer, purchased the resort in 2007 and has since contributed significantly to the neighbourhood’s ongoing growth, which now has over 700 homeowners.
Predator Ridge’s residential properties, while varied in product type, are primarily low-density in nature to promote a well-integrated and inter-connected community while being sensitive to the area’s terrain.
About Predator Ridge
Predator Ridge derives its name from the location itself: situated between two lakes, the area is the ideal home to many kinds of predatory birds as owls, eagles, falcons, and hawks.
The Interior Salish Indigenous Peoples originally occupied the land. Later in history, the Northwest Company and the Hudson’s Bay Company used a trail along the western edge of Okanagan Lake for fur trading purposes; the head of Okanagan Lake also drew attention during British Columbia’s Gold Rush in the 1850s.
Predator Ridge today comprises two primary neighbourhood centres: Predator Village and Meadows Landing. The area is accessible via the primary access road, Commonage Road. Predator Ridge Drive is the main collector street that connects the neighbourhood to adjacent communities. Emphasis has also been placed on alternative transportation routes for pedestrians and cyclists within the neighbourhood itself.
Predator Ridge Golf Resort, a premier tourist destination in the Okanagan, contributes significantly to the City of Vernon’s economic and employment growth. Sparking Hill Resort & Spa is another sought-after attraction. Predator Ridge is also a popular wedding venue, as the spectacular scenery provides a truly unique backdrop. Major community amenities such as grocery stores, pharmacies and banking institutions are easily available nearby at Vernon’s urban centre.

Popular activities at the park include canoeing, climbing, cycling, scuba diving, swimming, and fishing. There are over 6 kilometres of walking and hiking trails available, with varying difficulty levels. Pets are welcome on leash, with Sandy Beach serving as a pet beach. Picnic areas are available at Otter Bay and South Bay.
The park is open to the public on a seasonal basis, from March to October. Vehicle-accessible and double campsites are available for reservation via the BC Parks reservation system.
Visit the Campbell Brown Ecological Reserve
First established in 1977, the Campbell Brown Ecological Reserve spans 107 hectares with the purpose to “preserve ecosystems transitional between Ponderosa Pine and Interior Douglas-fir, and a rattlesnake den.” The reserve is historically significant as the first ecological reserve in British Columbia that was established on donated land from Dr. Hugh Campbell-Brown, whom the reserve is now named after.
While the reserve is not intended for outdoor recreation, hiking, nature observation and photography are welcomed as long as they are non-destructive. Hunting, fishing, camping and removal of any materials is prohibited.
If you are visiting with a group of 10 or more people, permission must be received before entering the reserve.
