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 neighbourhood 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.
Homes for sale in Rayleigh range in price from $500,000 and $900,000. The community has impressive single-family homes that typically have larger lots and upgraded interiors.
Rayleigh is 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, the 2,000 residents who call Rayleigh home enjoy Rae-Mor Park, a dog-friendly park with two ball diamonds and a cricket field.
Rayleigh became part of Kamloops in 1973. It was formerly a municipality and due to its location on the eastern side of the North Thompson River and south of Heffley Creek. Rayleigh Mount was a former post office located in the area, and the post office was named by W A Belcham, the first postmaster, after his home town in England. His wife and son continued to operate the post office until the 40s when they relocated to Little Fort. Indigenous reservation land and the river separate Rayleigh and Heffley Creek from the rest of the city.
