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.
Homes in Brocklehurst cost between $90,000 and $2 million. There are various home styles available, including mobile homes, condos, and luxury estate homes. With such a wide range of prices, there’s something for every budget in the desirable community.
Brocklehurst 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 incredible 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 homebuyers or those looking for an investment property.
Some of the most popular sports in the Brocklehurst neighbourhood include the Brocklehurst pool, Brocklehurst arena, Bmx Track, Ord Road Dog Park, and Mcarthur Island Park. You will always find residents and families at these spots, and they enrich the atmosphere of the community.
Originally named Cumcloups, an indigenous word meaning ‘meeting of the waters,’ Kamloops was a popular place for settlers during the fur trade and the subsequent gold rush era. The area saw immense growth throughout the 1850s to its incorporation in 1893. Due to the gold rush, the settlers, the overlanders, and the railroad, the area was thriving. Kamloops and North Kamloops were separate entities at the time, but in 1967 they amalgamated. Kamloops remains the service centre for plenty of important industries. Lumbering and cattle-ranching are the most significant industries, with others being food canning and packing, pulp and wood processing, and livestock marketing. Today, Kamloops is still a thriving community, and since the Trans-Canada highways run through the city, travellers come from all over Canada and stop in through the city, allowing tourism to be an essential industry.
