KANGAROO PARK

Winfield BC is a small community located mid-way between Kelowna and Vernon.

One block off highway 97 is Kangaroo Creek Farms – an actual kangaroo habitat.  This isn’t a zoo, it is more of a non-commercial reserve- the animals roam freely and are not kept in cages.  Kangaroos, wallabies, cabyberras (large rodents), sugar-gliders, peacocks, emus, goats, and pot bellied pigs.  Staff are found throughout the park to answer questions and to ensure the animals are not being harassed.

There is no set entrance fee to the Kangaroo park – but a donation of $5 per person is suggested.

Highlight of the park is being able to hold the baby kangaroos.
