Wildflowers at Manning Park Resort

When you think of Manning Park in the summer, do you picture a valley filled with wildflowers? You’re not the only one.

Manning Park is home to over 100 species of alpine and sub-alpine wildflowers — and that’s about how many places there are in the park to enjoy them! Each year we are treated to a spectacle of bloom and colour at Manning Park that starts in the spring, builds to its peak in July, and continues through to fall.

Wildflowers can be seen along trails, in park areas, and near Lightning Lake and the Similkameen River. If you’re keen to experience a true wildflower spectacle, seek a higher vantage point at Manning Park: hike in to Poland Lake, the Alpine Meadows, and along the Skyline and Three Falls trails.

At Manning Park, you will find yourself surrounded by beauty at all times of year, but to see wildflowers like you’ve never seen you really have to come in spring and summer.

Wildflower Walks


Wildflower walks happen 5 days/week during the summer. (June 29-Sept. 1, 2019)

Friday-Monday & Wednesday, typically at 11am. Check weekly schedule to confirm. Meet at Naturalist hut at upper parking lot on Blackwall Peak road.
