Rayleigh is a small neighbourhood situated between the North Thompson River and Highway 5, about 15 km north of the city core. Native reserve lands and the Thompson River separate Rayleigh from the rest of Kamloops. Residents enjoy long, warm summers, spectacular mountain views and fertile land. The neighborhood is older with many single detached homes boasting large flat yards. A few homes have waterfront property. If you are a skier, the roads to Sun Peaks and Harper Mountain are just minutes away.
Rayleigh is also home to the “Tournament Capital Ranch,” a newer recreation facility that offers miles of river views, walking and softball amenities. The park is open seven days a week and is one of Western Canada’s largest stand alone slo-pitch facilities.
Additionally Rayleigh residents enjoy Rae-Mor Park, a dog friendly park with two ball diamonds and a cricket field.
Students typically attend South Kamloops Secondary School.
