Individual Trail

West Kelowna

17 min driving from Downtown Kelowna

Named after Westbank Pioneer, Shannon Marshall and known to the First Nations people as Tenas Lake (small lake), this short trail is an easy one for the family and stroller-friendly.

The lake was used as a source of water by the First Nation's Tsinstikeptum Reserve in the early 20th century, it also provides water to the Marshall and Marlow Springs. In 1977, the south end of Shannon Lake was established as a Regional Park spanning 3.7 hectares.

Stocked with rainbow trout, the lake is known for fishing. In the summertime, a "Go Fish" program usually takes place, it provides youth under the age of 16 a chance to learn how to fish. The lake is also home to several waterbirds and turtles which are seen frequently.

The area is perfect for picnicking and dogs are allowed on a leash, providing you clean up after them.
