The first non-native settlement in the Okanagan Valley was a mission established on this site in 1859 by Father Pandosy. Take a self-guided tour of the replicated mission buildings and a collection of horse-drawn carriages.

Well preserved piece of local history. A must see anytime of year. Kids will enjoy running from building to building. While parents take the time to see the beginnings of kelowna.

Everyone should check out this interesting place. It was an eye opener to see how people lived and how they built their houses and out buildings long ago.

Went many times with the children on school trips. Very interesting site with informative staff. It is a small site and doesn't take take long to see everything.

The Father Pandosy Mission is worth making a trip to go see. Only 10 minutes from downtown and yet 100 years back in time. You can walk the entire property in under 45 minutes. Definitely best to go from mid-spring to early fall.
