DIRECTIONS COMING FROM NORTHWEST OF PENTICTONWe describe lots of road name changes and landmarks here so that you can check that you're on the right track, but there are few turns to make. Refer to the map below the following description.
If you are coming into Penticton from the northwest (from Summerland, Peachland, the Coquihalla Connector, Westbank, Kelowna), then you are on Highway 97 heading south.
You go across a bridge as you enter town, and Highway 97 becomes Eckhardt Avenue West. You will pass a driving range on your right and then cross a traffic light. Then you will pass a golf course on your right, and a park and Wine Centre on your left just before a traffic light. To your right is the Channel Parkway/Highway 97 bypass. Do NOT take this turn, keep going straight on Eckhardt Avenue West. You will pass another park on your right and then the road will bend left. You will cross 3 more traffic lights, the third one at Main Street. As you cross Main Street, Eckhardt Avenue West becomes Eckhardt Avenue East. Soon you will pass the High School on your right.
TURN #1:At the next traffic light, turn south (right) onto Government Street. Then follow Government Street until, after crossing the next traffic light at Duncan Avenue, you go up a hill to another traffic light.
You are now at the corner of the Hospital at Government Street and Carmi Avenue (facing south).
