The region of Boundary lies along the boundary line between Canada and the United States. To the east of the Okanagan Valley and to the west of the Kootenay Region. Boundary includes Kettle, West Kettle, Granby Rivers, Rock Creeks and Christina Lake.
Filled with many things to do, Boundary has an abundance of activities and incredible places to see. The flowing rivers make it fun during a hot summer day for riding down the Kettle or Granby river on a tube. There’s a ton of space for fishing, swimming, and boating among the rivers and lakes.
Boundary is filled with minerals and large tracts of untamed land. The landscapes of cedar, pine, and spruce are combined with forested mountains, ranch lands, and lush valleys. With all the luscious, green mountains the fun doesn’t stop when the snow comes. Winter activities include snowshoeing or skiing heritage trails and ice covered lakes at Phoenix Mountain!
Visitors come to Boundary, not only for its fun activities but for its rich history. This is the place where visitors can discover the deserted ghost town of Phoenix. They can wander among the once vibrant buildings, exploring the homes of families long gone and experience a glimpse into a historic period.
The history lessons don’t stop there. The city of Greenwood, Canada’s smallest city, is full of architecture a kaleidoscope of color and a long history along Greenwood’s main street and neighborhoods. Visitors can explore the vibrant townscape through meandering down these streets and exploring heritage buildings, from the town’s courthouse to jail.
Greenwood also has a troubled and dark history. During WWII, 1,200 Canadians of Japanese descent were interned at the city. Visitors can step into cramped quarters intended to house a family of four. They can also be inspired by stories of how family, love, and community overcame hardship.
Boundary is fun for the whole family and a great way to escape a busy city and relax in the backwoods.
