Don't forget Yawbus. It was right there on the corner, right where the Starbucks is.

I moved to Kelowna in 2012 from Vancouver, before that I was a frequent visitor to the Okanagan for work. Like most people, I'd always heard of Rutland as the Surrey of Kelowna. When looking at places, we looked at Glenmore and Mission, then the realator suggested Black Mountain. I had no idea where it was, but on the drive over I realized we were going through Rutland. I asked her about that, and she assured me that its no longer the same Rutland that garnered the reputation originally. Sure, okay, of course she would say that.

We ended up in Black Mountain, thinking its not in Rutland proper, and we can scoot down Springfield for everything we need without going to Rutland itself. Well, we were pleasantly surprised after the first month to find everything we needed between Hollywood Blvd and Rutland Rd, and virtually none of the stigma associated with Rutland. Mostly just bored teenagers thinking they are something. Everyone we've ever met here is awesome. We've visited friends in Upper Mission and holy hell, its like the Stepford Wives. Doesn't matter where else we go, it always feels good to be coming back up Hwy 33.

On the topic of food, Zabb Thai at Hollywood and 33 is awesome!

Rutland is a great place to live. There is lots of families, parks and amazing people along with plenty of places to shop.
You'll also find many beautiful tree lined streets and neighbourhood gatherings.
I might die tonight but if I do I'm a be ok
And if I die tonight at least I stood by stuff I said
I've got two graves dug one for me and one for the person in my way
And if I die tonight at least I can say I never ran away.

We bought our first home in Rutland 15 years ago. With the exception of a neighbor or two we have found it to be a great place to live. Close to shopping at Willow Park and Plaza 33. WLking distance to the Greenway and several neighborhood parks and just a few minutes drive to Costco, Superstore and Canadian Tire. We love it here.

I lived in Rutland for 5 years. I really liked how many fast food and good restaurants there were. I also liked Ben Lee Park and being near the Greenway. Also, the close proximity to Wal Mart and the big box stores on the north end of town was great. I would say 60% of the people seemed ‘normal’ and the other 40% seemed rough/low income/a bit scary (or majorly scary).
