Juniper Ridge is situated at the south-east end of Kamloops on a hillside south of the South Thompson River, just south of Valleyview. It is nestled in the hills and many homes enjoy expansive views of the South Thompson River and mountainside. Juniper Ridge is accessible by one road (Highland Road), although emergency access is available via Rose Hill. Its proximity to both nature and the urban city life draws both young and older families.
The neighbourhood can be loosely divided into the older “Juniper East” subdivision and the newer “Juniper West” subdivision. While mostly a residential neighbourhood, there is a small convenience store at the community entrance. Residents of Juniper Ridge also enjoy the Dog Park and the Kamloops Bike Ranch, in addition to a community park and playground, separate from the elementary school. Most homes are single family units, with one multi-family complex in Juniper East.
Students typically attend Valleyview Secondary.
