Back in March of 2020, I hit a slick patch in a freak snow storm in Winfield, causing my car to continue going straight around a turn, which brought a sideswipe collision into my life, leaving a nasty dent in the side of my beautiful baby!!!

While I knew it would be covered under a claim, I searched around for a body shop which could complete my ICBC Claim for a reasonable price, the shop I brought it to in Kelowna and those I called around to in the valley wanted to use only new parts, however, when I spoke to Roy, he immediately suggested he’d be on the lookout for used – like new – parts to repair the banged up side!! He brought the costs down by at least $2000’s! There were also a few paint chips in the front he fixed as he went!!

Not only that, Roy is a lovely person to deal with, having an amazing sense of humor and great stories! And ON TOP of it all, he completely cleaned & detailed every inch of my car and removed every speck of sawdust, dirt & other grime from my car, leaving me with a brand new looking & feeling car! I couldn’t be more happier with this lovely man and his incredible service!!!

Much love, and as much as I hope I don’t ever have to go back there, I know where to go and where to send all my friends 🙂 HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Brought my car in for new tires, they gave me a great deal on 4 Firestones and a wheel alignment! Just be prepared to spend more time then their estimated wait time, as they are a very popular shop and they are quick to help when emergencies arrive. Reahd & Joe are AWESOME!

Subcity Donair

1905 Baron Rd, Kelowna, BC V1X 6A3

★★★★★

When this shop started up years ago, this was the second one in Kelowna, run by the same people who started the first one a few years prior to that. My mom was right there to show her support, as she’s a Maritimer and missed her Donairs! To be sure that they were perfect, she shared the special ‘sweet sauce’ recipe, a sauce that makes these Donairs an amazing experience to this day! This place holds a special place in my heart, as many mother daughter dates have always been held here.

Mission Creek Regional Park

Many fond memories of this place. The playground always had the largest swings in the valley, when I first swung on them, they had wooden logs behind them, however, the logs were soon removed due to safety reasons. Sadly, almost 20 years later, the swings have also been removed…

The playground was fairly small when I was a kid, but one of the largest in Kelowna till Ben Lee was built. They upgraded the playground about 15 years ago, an amazing playground, sturdy and no splinters. They also made additions about 5 years ago, however while I enjoy climbing their newest addition, I’m not fond of the ropes themselves, as the plastic chosen has shown to not weather well and really is uncomfortable to climb. Also, really loving the bouncy rubber matting, however, not a fan of wood chips, as it’s uncomfortable sure to scrape landing.

There are many trails to go hiking or biking in, even ground for calmer walks, and steeper trails for the more adventurous. My father taught me much about plant foliage wandering around this park. They introduced a Gazebo like structure and a Center you can go to learn more about the wildlife there, extremely educational! Learn how the the land locked Kokanee salmon make their annual spawning run along the Mission Creek and much much more!
