Boothman's Oxbow Provincial Park

About This Park

The park has significant riparian, grassland and wildlife values, including a rare riparian black cottonwood ecological community and numerous provincially red- and blue-listed animal species. Approximately 1,300 metres of the park’s southern boundary is riparian frontage along the Kettle River.

Situated within the Southern Okanagan Highlands Ecosection, the biogeoclimatic subzone/variant represented within Boothman’s Oxbow Provincial is PPdh1 (PPdh1 Ponderosa Pine dry hot Kettle variant). A small portion of the park area incorporates the Kettle River.

Swimming, angling, kayaking, picnicking, hiking and wildlife appreciation are popular activities in the park.
