Brocklehurst, commonly referred to as “Brock,” is located in West Kamloops 15 minutes from the downtown core on the north side of the Thompson River The neighbourhood is ethnically diverse and family friendly, offering quiet, open streets. It stretches from the north side of the Thompson River and nestles up against Batchelor Hill. Locals will tell you that 12th Street is the dividing line between North Kamloops and Brock. Due to its low altitude and proximity to the Thompson River, Brocklehurst has the warmest climate in the city of Kamloops, meaning longer summers and shorter winters. Housing consists of Senior Assisted Living, detached homes, waterfront properties, several mobile home parks, apartment buildings and strata developments. It is home to many beautiful parks such as the Sing Bowl Park, Ord Road Dog Park, and the Crestline Community Park which has a community garden. The Kamloops International Airport is also located at the very west end of Brocklehurst, accessible via Tranquille Road or off Highway 5 via Ord Road.
The rural neighbourhood of Tranquille (further West of Brocklehurst past the airport) offers wonderful day hikes and exploring into the Lac Du Bois Grasslands. This is where the Thompson River empties into Kamloops Lake. Brocklehurst is an extremely desirable area for first-time home buyers or those looking for investment property.
